1 min read

Kwara State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has approved the subsidy on the cost of 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for students in public schools across the state.

A total of 55,150 candidates are writing the examinations in the state.

A statement by Mr. Peter Amogbonjaiye from the State Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development said that all candidates in public schools would pay N2,500 only, the same amount charged last year, instead of N5,000 or more which it was meant to be reviewed to due to inflation and rising cost of conducting the examination.

The subsidy is part of administration’s efforts to support the students and their parents, as well as avoid any student dropping out of school on account of the inability to afford the examination.

The statement said the subsidies will be enjoyed by all the candidates that will sit for this year 2024 BECE .

The statement, therefore, warned public officials against extorting money from parents under any guises, saying that anyone caught will face the consequences of such an action.
