Duba encouraged the people of Bayelsa to anticipate Governor Diri’s second term with more hope. The release of ₦192 million has been granted by Bayelsa Governor Douye Diri, allowing 2,011 Senior Secondary School pupils in the state to take their final year exams in 2024 at no expense to their parents.
The organizations that administer the exams are the National Examination Council (NECO) and the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
#Chief Ayibaina Duba, Commissioner for Information, Orientation, and Strategy, said the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenagoa on Wednesday that the state’s thirteen Government Model Secondary Schools produced the beneficiaries.
According to Duba, the clearance was in line with the governor’s consistent education policy for the previous four years.
He claimed that the government purposefully invests in education and the development of human capital by paying the WAEC and NECO examination fees each year.
“The government funds students’ examinations for the Junior Secondary School Certificate and the Unified Primary School Leaving Examination at no cost to parents, in addition to paying WAEC and NECO examination fees,” he stated.
