Benue fixes N4,500 for mock WASSCE
GOVERNOR Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Sunday directed principals of senior secondary schools in the state not to levy the pupils for mock examinations above N4,500.00.
Ortom gave the directive to the Benue State Examination Board which had earlier jerked up the mock fees to N6,500 per candidate.
According to the statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Terver Akase, the governor had further directed that no candidate for the mock examination in the state should be asked to pay N6,500.
The statement added, “The governor has also given a charge to the state Ministry of Education to ensure that secondary school principals strictly comply with the directive. They should also not impose arbitrary levy on the senior school certificate examination candidates.
“Governor Ortom reassures the people that his administration will continue to place priority on the education of the Benue child.”
