The Kano State Government says it has paid N336 million as fees for 29,031 students for the 2022 National Examination Council examinations.
The State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, disclosed this to newsmen on Monday in Kano.
Garba was reacting to a media report insinuating that the state students might miss this year’s NECO examination over the government’s inability to settle their examination fees.
He explained that payment covered 15,313 students that had 9 credits from their qualifying examination, 1,018 students living with disabilities.
According to him, the payment also covered 7,300 students for Special Intervention which is basically for Girl Child Education while the local government councils paid for 5,400 students.
The commissioner also said that the examination was not being held today as speculated.
“Today (Monday) is the “Test Interpretation Practical”, which is only for teachers to come up with modalities for the practical exams,” the commissioner said.
