In a significant development, the National Examinations Council (NECO) has finalized plans to administer the Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) internally within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The decision comes on the heels of the successful accreditation of the Nigeria International School in Jeddah, spearheaded by a high-level delegation led by the Minister of State for Education, Yusuf Sununu, and NECO Registrar, Prof. Dantani Wushishi.

A statement released by Azeez Sani, the Acting Director of the Directorate of Information and Digital Communication at NECO, disclosed that the delegation conducted a thorough assessment of the school facilities during their visit.

During his address, Minister Sununu encouraged both the faculty and students of the school to uphold the image of Nigeria as exemplary ambassadors, not only in Saudi Arabia but across the entire Gulf States Cooperation Council.

The accreditation process involved a meticulous evaluation of various aspects of the school's infrastructure, including examination halls, classrooms, laboratories, library facilities, curriculum, syllabus, and overall security measures. Following the assessment, Nigeria International School was deemed suitable to serve as an International Centre for NECO SSCE Internal examinations, earning full accreditation.

NECO Registrar Prof. Wushishi, in his remarks, underscored the importance of school accreditation to ensure that educational institutions possess adequate teaching and learning facilities conducive to conducting examinations.

Upon their arrival at the school, the delegation was warmly received by Consular General Amb. Bello Kazaure, the School's Proprietor Alhaji Abdulkadir Maikudi, and other staff members. Additionally, the minister and registrar paid a visit to the Nigeria House in Jeddah, engaging in discussions with Consular General officials and consulate staff.

This move further expands NECO's international footprint, with existing examination centers already established in countries such as Togo, Benin Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, and the Republic of Gabon.
