The Kano State Government says it has paid N336 million as 2022 National Examination Council, NECO, fees for 29, 031 students in the state.
The State Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, made the disclosure to newsmen on Monday in Kano.
Mr Garba was reacting to a media report insinuating that the state students might miss the 2022 NECO examination over the government’s inability to settle their examination fees.
