NECO Warns Public Over Online Scammers


The National Examination Council, NECO, has warned candidates sitting for its examinations against engaging the services of persons who post requests online, asking them to pay and get leaked answers.

NECO’s Abuja Liaison Officer, Mr. Abdul Mustapha, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja, said such online postings were fraudulent.

Mustapha noted that such fraudsters only cheat candidates who are gullible.



    He assured the public that no one has access to NECO questions and answers.

    “They cannot get our answers; they will pretend as if they have seen the answers but it is all lies. Our questions appear in four types – types A to D, but what they present to unsuspecting candidates is just manufactured answers without the type specifications. Again, our questions stop at 50, but theirs continue from 51 to 100; that is another proof that they have not seen our answers.

    He said candidates should always endeavor to alert the council of such scammers rather than engage their services.

    This year’s NECO/SSCE examination, which started across the country on May 21, will end on July 10.
