FG Approves Scrapping of NECO, NAPEP, Others

As part of efforts to streamline the public sector and cut the cost of governance, the federal government has approved the scrapping of the National Examinations Council (NECO) and the National Poverty Eradication Programme (NAPEP).

It is also set to decentralise the conduct of entrance examinations to universities and other tertiary institutions through the planned reorganisation of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), responsible for conducting Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in the country.

A highly-placed source in the presidency said Tuesday that the overhaul of the public service was in line with the recommendations of the Presidential Committee on the Rationalisation and Restructuring of Federal Government Parastatals and Commissions led by former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mr. Steve Oronsaye.
