Alleged sale of WAEC and NECO forms leads to suspension of principal and exam officer by Taraba Govt

Posted by

Government Day Secondary School (GDSS) Salihu Dogo in Jalingo, Taraba State’s capital, has suspended its principal and examination officer.

Their suspension was announced in a letter sent by the State Ministry of Education. It was said that the two were trying to undermine Dr. Agbu Kefas’s free education agenda.

Exam slots for the West African Examination Certificate (WAEC) and the National Examination Certificate (NEC) were allegedly sold to external candidates for personal gain by the school’s examination officer, Ezekiel Rimamsikwe, and principal Haruna Joshua Assembo.

The Ministry of Education pointed out that all prospective students in the state were supposed to be able to take both exams for free.

Payroll for WAEC and NECO were both paid for by the state government, as you may recall.

Parents and guardians of secondary school children were intended to feel less burdened by the present economic crisis through the gesture.

The Ministry has formed an investigating team to look into the problem and find out how involved the suspects are, as of the time this article was filed.

It is imperative that the Examination Officer immediately relinquish his office to a capable individual while the investigation is underway, as the Vice-Principal, Administration, has been tasked with supervising the school’s operations.
