NCCE would take effect from the 2017/2018 academic

“The second test is an unnecessary additional financial
burden on parents/guardians,” it quoted Mr. Adamu as
saying.

“The era of multiple examinations attracting prohibitive
fees cannot be accommodated by the Buhari
administration, especially against the backdrop of
government’s determination to increase access to
education as a platform for breaking the cycle of
poverty.’’
