FG Reduces The Cost Of Jamb And Neco Exam Fee

The federal government of Nigeria has approved a reduction in the cost of forms for Jamb, Neco and  other secondary educational certificates.

This reduction was decided on Wednesday during the meeting held by The Federal Executive Council (FEC) in the presence of the Vice president.

The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo presided over the meeting in the absence of President Buhari who travelled on official assignment to Borno State.

The House of Representatives had in May urged the Federal Ministry of Education to slash the cost of JAMB application forms due to yearning from citizens, especially parents.

The lawmakers had accused JAMB of becoming a “revenue generating agency.

Main while, The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who briefed journalists at the end of the meeting, said the reduction followed the pleas from parents.

“So, in answer to yearnings my parents, Mr. President directed that we should look into the possibility of reducing the charges,” he said.
“So accordingly, from January 2019, JAMB fees will be from N5,000 to N3,500 for the UTME, Senior Secondary Certificate charged by National Examination Council (NECO) from 11,350 to N9,850 and Basic Education Certificate handled by NECO is reduced from N5,500 to N4,000,” he said.
