A couple of days ago, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the appointment of Prof. Godswill Obioma as the new Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the National Examinations Council (NECO), following the sack Prof. Charles Uwakwe and three other members of the management for various offences bordering on misappropriation of council funds.
A statement from NECO on Friday said Obioma officially took over from the former Acting Registrar, Abubakar Gana, on May 22 at the Council’s Headquarters in Minna, Niger State.
The new NECO Boss is a Professor of Education who specialised on Measurement and Evaluation and is a former Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC).
Until his appointment as Registrar/CEO of NECO, Prof. Obioma was the Ebonyi State Resident Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The statement made available by the spokesperson of the board disclosed that new Registrar officially took over from the former Acting Registrar, Abubakar Gana, on May 22 at the Council’s Headquarters in Minna.
He was employed in 1991 as Professor of Mathematics Education and Evaluation, University of Jos, and from 2001 to 2003, one time a Director of Monitoring, Research and Statistics, National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), Benin, Edo State.
