A former Chairman of the National Examination Council Board, Prof Abubakar Mohammed, has accused government officials of taking N6 billion that belongs to the examination body and not accounting for it.
Mohammed made this accusation on Saturday at the NECO Award Ceremony held in Minna, Niger State.
He said: “The government and especially some officials in the Ministry of Education are out to sabotage the indigenous examination body. I do not owe anyone any apology for my statement, some government officials don’t want NECO to exist.
“The officials first withdrew the N6 billion found in the accounts of NECO. Till date, the money has not been returned and nobody even bothered to inform us what they did with the money”.
