“The management of NDE feels that our students that are participating in WAEC, NECO and even JAMB are failing these exams massively, even though the teachers are really trying their best.

“The Director General feels that it’s time for NDE to come out with a novel scheme that will assist these school children by equipping them with more knowledge on how to write their exams and come out in flying colours.

“That’s why we conceived this scheme and recruited personnel who are knowledgeable in various fields so that they can assist our children to see that they are able to pass their examinations,” he said.

He called on the tutors to see the programme as an avenue to further serve their nation by helping the children of others to triumph in their academic pursuit.

“The students should see this an ample opportunity for them because the training is free of charge and if they are going to pay for it somewhere, it would cost them some money.

“They should be up and doing, they should make sure they come in good time, they should listen to their instructors and whatever happens, they should abide by the rules and regulations of the centre,” Yaya said.
