A lawmaker from Abia state and spokesman of House of Representatives, Honourable Benjamin Okezie Kalu, has applauded President Mohammedu Buhari for the appointment of Professor Godwill Obioma as the registrar of the National Examination Council (NECO), describing the appointment as a square peg in a square hole.
Kalu stated this Monday in a congratulatory letter to Professor Obioma as the new regisrar of NECO made available to journalists in Minna
The lawmaker said: “As far as executive appointments go, none has been as spot on as President Buhari’s appointment of Professor Godswill Obioma as registrar and chief executive officer of NECO. This appointment comes at a time when NECO confronts several challenges seeking to undermine its operations, including the tasks of repairing the integrity of the examination body, solving infrastructural and technological deficits as well as fulfilling expectations to improve the turnaround time of examination results.”
He stated that adaptation to a COVID-19 and post COVID-19 era will be the single greatest challenge of the council in a world that has been forced to re imagine its way of life.
He said: “A distinguished product of Abia state, Professor Obioma has spearheaded a number of policy reforms and institutional changes in Nigeria’s educational curriculum including the 9-year Basic Education Curriculum, the Senior Secondary Education and others.”
