The National Examinations Council (NECO) has said that arrangements have been concluded to conduct the Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) internal in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Acting Director, Directorate of Information and Digital Communication of NECO, Azeez Sani announced the development in a statement issued on Saturday, March 30, 2024.

Sani disclosed that the announcement was coming on the heels of successful Accreditation of the Nigeria International school, Jeddah by a powerful NECO delegation led by the Minister of State for Education, Dr. Yusuf Tanko Sununu and the Registrar of NECO, Prof. Dantani Wushishi.

During the visit, the delegation undertook an assessment of the school facilities and had an Interactive session with the Management and Staff of the school.

The Minister of State for Education, Dr. Sununu in his address, enjoined the staff and students of the school to continue to be good ambassadors of Nigeria not only in Saudi Arabia but the entire Gulf States Cooperation Council.

He explained that after a careful assessment of the school’s learning facilities such as Examination Halls, Class rooms, Laboratories, Library, Curriculum and syllabus as well as the general security of the school, the Nigeria International School Jeddah was found worthy of consideration as an International Centre for NECO SSCE Internal, and was consequently granted full Accreditation.

The Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO, Prof. Wushishi who gave a brief history on the evolution of NECO, explained to the Management and Staff of the School the importance of School Accreditation, which he said was to ensure that schools have adequate teaching and learning facilities conducive for examinations.

The delegation were earlier received on arrival at the School by the Consular General, Ambassador Bello Kazaure and the Proprietor of the School, Alhaji Abdulkadir Maikudi and other Staff of the School.

The Minister and the NECO Registrar also visited the Nigeria House in Jeddah, where they interacted with the Consular General and other Staff of the Consulate.

It would be recalled that the National Examination Council has other International Examination Centres in Togo, Benin Republic, Equitorial Guinea, Niger and Republic of Gabon.
