Anambra Tops 2013 NECO, Produces Overall Best:
Anambra State has again recorded first position among all the states in the country whose candidates took the 2013 National Examination Council (NECO).
This disclosure was coming barely a week after the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) statistics showed that Anambra State came first among all the states in Nigeria whose students took the 2013 West African Senior School Certificate Examination ( WASSCE).
It was gathered that besides being the overall best in the country, an indigene of the State, Agbasi Praise Chinemelum, with the Registration number of 424953GE emerged the best candidate in the NECO.
Speaking on the development, the immediate past Commissioner for Education in the state, Dr. Uju Okeke, said it was another demonstration of the fruits from the huge investment of the former Governor of the State in education.
The commissioner expressed confidence that the performance of the state would be better in the coming years, when the effects to return schools to their owners as well as other programmes put in place by the Peter Obi government began to manifest.
Anambra State officer of NECO, Mr. John Tumba, has already congratulated the state government on the feat. (National Mirror)
