Brief History of NECO
In 1997, the Abacha administration set up the Etsu Nupe panel to re-examine the Nigerian education system. In the same year, the vision 2020 was set up by the Federal Government with a committee on review of Nigeria’s education system.
Both the Etsu Nupe panel and the vision 2020 committee observed that in spite of the drastic reduction in its workload, WAEC’s challenges still persisted and therefore recommended the establishment of an indigenous examination body parallel to WAEC as Nigeria’s home-grown alternative examination body.
The harmonized report of the two committees was published in January 1998. The published report was presented at the 46th meeting of the National Council on Education (NCE) held at Abeokuta Ogun state in March 1999, where a resolution to upgrade the National Board for Educational Measurement (NBEM) into a full-scale national examination outfit of the same standard as WAEC was passed.
A policy to create the National Examinations Council (NECO) was formulated. Consequently, NBEM became the nucleus of NECO. NBEM’s capacity was built by employing additional qualified personnel, acquiring more equipment and facilities, and upgrading the existing ones. NBEM was therefore made stronger and its capacity was upgraded and enhanced to meet international standards. NBEM was then transformed to become National Examinations Council (NECO).
NECO then commenced its maiden Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) in June/July 2000, with resounding success. NECO also successfully continued to discharge all the mandates of NBEM in addition to the conduct of the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) without prejudice to the existing functions and powers of WAEC.
The enabling decree 33 of 1999 establishing the National Examinations Council (NECO) became an act of parliament cited as the “National Examinations Council (NECO) (establishment) act 2002.
