  • Sir, Ma you need to see for yourself what have been going on at mainland’s centre, well I will not blame them, I will blame the neco body for their incompetence; merging 24 centres together, why won’t there be exam malpractice? Why won’t there be special centres?
    To worsen everything neco officials; if they were present at all, came around to play. I just hope the innocent ones will not suffer what the guilty should suffer. Redeeming image is not by mass failure, it’s standing for what is right. It will be unjustified of neco if the “righteous suffer the lot of the unrighteous” and if those tyrants, hungry men, in disguise as teachers are not brought to book.
