The government of Kano has inaugurated a committee to investigate the mass failure in the recently concluded qualifying examinations for senior secondary schools in the state.


Balarabe Kiru, the director of public enlightenment at the state’s ministry of education, confirmed the development in a statement on Wednesday.

According to NAN, Kiru said the committee’s mandate included determining the extent and causes of the failure.

“The committee will also assess whether there was compliance with the established procedure for releasing results,” he said.


“It is also part of the committee’s responsibility to advise the government on the best ways to conduct future examinations.”

Kiru said the committee has one week to submit its report. He said the panel would be headed by Tajuddeen Gambo, special adviser to the governor on education.

Kiru listed members of the committee including Kabiru Zakirai, the executive secretary of the Kano State Senior Secondary School Management Board; and Baba Umar, the executive secretary of the Private and Voluntary Schools Board.


Also on the committee are Nura Ma’aji, the special adviser to the governor on student matters; Rabi Hussain, the director of the Kano Educational Resources Department (KERD); and Rabiu Mijinyawa, the former director of the Kano Educational Resources Department.

Kiru said the senior special assistant to the governor on girl child education Hafsat Adhama would serve as the secretary.
