The governing board of the National Examinations Council (NECO) has approved the appointment of Ebikibina Ogborodi as the acting registrar/chief executive of the council.


According to NAN, Azeez Sani, the council’s head of information and public relations division, broke the news in a statement on Thursday.

Sani said that the council’s governing board endorsed the appointment of the acting registrar at its emergency meeting on Wednesday.

The statement explained that Ogborodi was appointed because he was the most senior director in the council, adding that all activities of the council would continue as earlier planned.


Until his appointment, Ogborodi, who hails from Sagbama LGA of Bayelsa state, was the council’s director of special duties.

He obtained his first degree from the University of Jos (UNIJOS) in 1986 and a master’s degree in learning disability from the same university in 1999.

The acting registrar joined the service of NECO in 1999 and had served in different capacities including as a former acting director of the examination development department.


Others include as acting director, office of the registrar; director of general services; and director of human resource management at the council.

The development comes barely days after the demise of Godswill Obioma, its former registrar.

Obioma died in the federal capital territory (FCT) on Monday. While some reports said he was assassinated, others claimed he died after a brief illness at his residence.
