Speaking with newsmen after the meeting Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said:
“Today’s meeting is to brief the commissioners on our level of preparedness for the upcoming examination and to seek their kind support, as critical stakeholders, to ensure that the exercise is a huge success.
“Recall that this meeting is usually held every examination year with the commissioners to brief them on what we are doing as it concerns the entire examination process, making it inclusive, robust and interactive, as much as we can.
“Again, we disclosed to the commissioners how their states are faring, especially to encourage them in our appeal for collaboration for the establishment of world-class Computer Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide.
“We showed them the result of the 2023 centre accreditation for the conduct of the examination nationwide, which proved that just a total of 600 centres have been approved, out of the over 800 that applied,” he said.
According to him, the approved figure is 140 less than the total number used for the same exercise in 2022.
“Like we all know, it is an election year. But we have lined up our activities in such a way that it will not be affected by the elections.
