•58.75% score five credits

The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) has released the results of its May/June 2017 National Business Certificate/National Technical Certificate examinations.

In the results, 33,712 candidates representing 58.75 per cent scored five credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics, from 57,387 candidates who sat for the examination.

Its Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. (Mrs.) Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, who spoke yesterday at a news conference, said 47,360 candidates representing 82.53 per cent scored five credits and above with or without English Language and Mathematics.

Prof. Ifeoma said there was reduction in this year’s cases of examination malpractices as 1,905 candidates, representing 3.26 per cent, were involved in examination malpractice against 2,273 cases recorded last year.

The NABTEB boss reiterated calls for the establishment of more modern and well-equipped technical colleges across the country.

She noted that the implementation of the National Vocational Qualifications Framework, which was approved by the Federal Executive Council in 2013, would promote the studies of technical education.

She stated that the progress recorded was still below expectation considering the nation’s quest for rapid technological growth and the significant role of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Nigeria.

Prof. Ifeoma said NABTEB’s activities were central to the actualisation of the change agenda of the Federal Government in the area of technical and vocational education and training.

She called for concerted efforts by the stakeholders to stem the tide of youth restiveness and unemployment by promoting technical and vocational education and training.
