Minister on NECO
The Federal Government says it is yet to consider the white-paper on the Oransanye Committee. Minister of State for Education, Nyeso Wike announced this in Abuja. He said the report of the 10-member White Paper Drafting Committee set up on the Oransanye Committee’s recommendations, is yet to be released and considered by the Government.
Apparently reacting to speculations on the purported scrapping of the National Examination Council – NECO and restructuring of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Nyeso Wike stated that the Federal Government will consider the pros and cons of the White Paper before taking a decision, adding that Government is committed to the development of the Education Sector.
