President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Prof Godswill Obioma as the new Registrar/Chief Executive of the National Examinations Council (NECO).

This is comes two days after Prof Charles Uwakwe, former Registrar and CEO of the Council and four others were sacked by Buhari over allegations of financial impropriety.

A statement from NECO on Friday said Obioma officially took over from the former Acting Registrar, Abubakar Gana, on May 22, 2020, at the Council’s headquarters in Minna.

A letter dated 15th May, 2020 with Reference No: FME/PS/396/C1/1/134 and signed by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, stated that the appointment which is for an initial tenure of five years, takes effect from 14th May, 2020.

Until his appointment as Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO, Prof. Obioma was the Ebonyi State Resident Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Obioma, a professor of Education Measurement and Evaluation, hails from Bende Local Government Area of Abia State.
