    69,828 candidates sit for 2022 entrance exams into Unity schools

    No fewer than 69,828 pupils on Saturday sat for the 2022 National Common Entrance Examination (NECO) for admission into the 110 federal government colleges across the country.

    Malam Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, disclosed this when he led some top ministry officials and NECO officials on a monitoring exercise to some centres in Abuja.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some of the centres visited included Government Secondary School, Lugbe; Junior Secondary School, Lugbe; and Federal Government College, Kwali, Abuja.

    Adamu, who was represented by Mr David Adejo, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, added that out of the total figure, there are more female applicants than their male counterparts in the on-going examination.

    “Of the 69,000 plus, we have 36,855 female applicants while the balance of 32,000 plus are male,” he said.

    On his assessment of the exercise, he noted that the examination has been hitch-free and peaceful.

    He added that laid out standards and criterias would strictly be adhered to in the selection of the successful candidates.

    “As far as Nigerian basic education is concerned, and in respect to the junior and secondary schools, the unity schools still remains the best, so for you to get into it, it has to be competitive.

    “We are not looking at taking all the 69,000 plus, we are taking the best of the 69,000 plus and there are standards that measures what you take.

    “So the standard and criteria have been put on ground, so I don’t see us having a problem with all that,” he said.
