Addressing a news conference in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday shortly after the release of the result by NECO, the Commissioner for Education, Mr Jide Egunjobi, said that the feat resulted from some radical measures taken by the government.

He recalled that the emergency Education Summit convened by the present administration in the state shortly after inauguration revealed that payment of examination fees by past administrations was part of the indulgences responsible for past failures. “Those who were paying for free registration in public exams without first inculcating discipline and hard work in the students did more harm than good for them. “An unserious student whose parents never suffered to pay either school fees or WAEC and NECO money may not see reason in being serious and dedicated to his studies “We found that it was the belief of such students that neither they nor their parents will lose anything after all, if they failed those exams since it was the government that would eventually bear the brunch. “We backed all these up by fortifying the schools with the right type of books, instructional materials and accorded priority attention to teachers’ welfare. “We also cancelled manual work such as grass cutting during school hours while our inspectorate division was strengthened to fish out lazy and complacent tutors,” he said. The commissioner said that the current performance would be celebrated “in grand style’’ by the government to serve as impetus to teachers and students, and would be maintained for a long time. In the result released by the new Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of NECO, Prof. prof Charles Uwake NECO Registrer , Ekiti was declared the best performing state with over 96.31 per cent success.
