The National Examinations Council (NECO) has indefinitely postponed the 2024 Staff Promotion Examination after backlashes and public outcry.
The Acting Director, Directorate of Information and Digital Communication in a statement issued on Friday said the postponement was in compliance with the directive of the Committee on Basic Examination Bodies of the House of Representatives.
The examination which was scheduled to hold on 14th and 15th February 2024 in Minna, Niger State had generated reactions.
The exam body had directed its staff members eligible for promotion to appear at its headquarters from January 13, 2024, to January 15, 2024.
However, the staff kicked against the development due to insecurity ravaging the country.
“The Committee has also scheduled a meeting with the Registrar/CE of NECO, Prof. Dantani Ibrahim Wushishi for Monday, 19″ February 2024. With this development, all NECO Staff who are due for promotion this year should note that the exercise has been put on hold indefinitely,” he added.
