Professor Ebeku, reaffirmed the commitment of the government to funding public examinations for all candidates in government institutions in the state.
On Monday, he briefed principals of public schools, the Parents Teachers Association (PRA), and other stakeholders in his office in Port Harcourt on the new method for candidate registration for the 2022 UTME (JAMB).
According to him;
“His Excellency, Governor Nyesom Wike, is very committed to funding and sponsoring public examinations in the State.”
He added that the briefing is necessary to enlighten the public about the government’s bureaucracy in terms of supporting public projects and to dispel slanderous assertions that the government is breaking its earlier promise to fund public examinations.
“Too often I find that even journalists do not have the facts and they go on criticizing the government. I called this meeting so I can inform the public through the journalists and the principals the procedure for financing public examinations, of which the government is totally committed,”
He went on to say that methods established by public examination organizations can cause bottlenecks, and that the resulting delays are frequently misunderstood and incorrectly attributed to a lack of government commitment.
The education commissioner also raised the issue of truancy, stating that supervisors had been dispatched to schools and that erring personnel will face appropriate consequences.
