I’ll make WAEC, NECO, JAMB free for Nigerian children, says Kwankwaso


The West African Examination Council (WAEC), Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and National Examination Council (NECO) will all be free for Nigerian pupils to take, according to Rabiu Kwankwaso, the New Nigeria Peoples Party's (NNPP) presidential candidate.

This was said by Kwankwaso when he unveiled his manifesto on Tuesday in Abuja.

In his campaign platform, the NNPP candidate promised to make sure that all entrance exams for tertiary institutions were free for Nigerians.

If elected in 2023, Kwankwaso promised that his administration would make sure that parents would not be required to pay any registration fees.

In addition to guaranteeing free exam forms, the former governor of Kano state stated that he would create policies to ensure that JAMB results are valid for four years.

According to the document, "Examination bodies are service agencies that facilitate access to higher education and training for our teaming young population.

"For our administration, no Nigerian child shall be denied the Opportunity to write WAEC, NECO, JAMB, etc., because of their inability to pay exorbitant registration/examination fees. 

"These examinations shall be free and all application forms for admission into Tertiary Education Institutions shall also be free;

"These examination bodies will be adequately funded by the kwankwaso administration.

"The notion that matriculation examination in Nigeria expires after one year will be stopped forthwith. 

"JAMB results under the Kwankwaso government will have a lifespan of four years and TEIs will be required to accept these results for the purposes of admission."
