The permanent secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, David Adejo, has lamented the rate at which parents made their underage children sit the National Common Entrance Examination.

 

He made the remarks while monitoring the 2023 examination alongside the registrar of the examination body, the National Examination Council (NECO), Ibrahim Wushishi.

“Parents should please let children get to the appropriate age before writing this examination, and we are going to make sure NECO puts appropriate checks in place,” he said.

He confirmed that some underage children were found to have sat the 2023 examination, an act which he said was not good for their development.

“We need to get the children to present their birth certificates before registration so that, at our end, we can curb some of these excesses.
“To get to a secondary school, a child should minimally be 12 years old, and a child of less than 11 years is unacceptable,’’ he stressed.
