Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the NECO had shown its disdain for forgery as the body dismissed 70 of its staff over certificate forgery.
The decision to dismiss the alleged certificate forgers was reached at the 17th extra-ordinary meeting of the governing board.
This was contained in a statement signed by Azeez Sani, the head of information and public relations division in Minna.
He said the dismissal happened as a result of a report submitted by a Committee constituted to verify the certificates of staff by the management of NECO.
Majority of the staff belonged to the junior cadre. The newspaper reports that only a few senior staff were affected.
The report went further to state that the schools which the dismissed staff claimed they attended denied them during the verification exercise.
