The National Examinations Council has announced the indefinite postponement of its 2024 staff promotion examination.

The national examination body disclosed this in a statement signed by its acting Director, Directorate of Information and Digital Communication, Azeez Sani, in a letter dated February 9, 2024.

The promotion examination was earlier scheduled to hold on February 14 and 15, 2024 in Minna, Niger State.

However, NECO informed all its staff who are due for promotion this year that the exercise has been put on hold.

The House of Representatives, on Wednesday, mandated the Committees on Education, Examination Board and Basic Education to interface with NECO on its planned promotion examination for about 1,500 staff, given the security and economic situation of the country.

A member of the All Progressives Congress, Akeem Adeyemi, noted, that due to the security situation in the country and the economic hardship biting hard on the citizens including NECO staff members, it is perilous to cause about 1,500 staff to travel from different parts of the country to one place in the name of a promotion examination.

In reaction to the resolution by the Green Chamber, Sani stated, “The Management of the National Examinations Council, NECO, has announced the indefinite postponement of the 2024 Staff Promotion Examination earlier scheduled to hold on 14th and 15th February 2024 in Minna, Niger State.

“The postponement is in compliance with the directive of the Committee on Basic Examination Bodies of the House of Representatives as contained in a letter referenced NASS/HR/10/CT.20/64 dated 9th February 2024 and signed by the Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Oboku Abonsizibe Oforji.

“With this development, all NECO staff who are due for promotion this year should note that the exercise has been put on hold indefinitely.”
