He said that the SSCE exams included: the National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Council for Arabic and Islamic Studies (NBAIS).
Kiru said that the decision followed the government’s approval of the release of the student’s qualifying examination results.
“While considering the submission, the government approved the sponsorship of the students as proposed by the ministry.
“Under this category, the government will sponsor the registration fees of 29,126 pupils who obtained five credits and above.
“The five credits must include Mathematics and English, obtained during the qualifying examinations.”
While congratulating the successful candidates, Kiru urged them to reciprocate the gesture and dedicate themselves to achieve academic excellence.
