NECO Registrar extols virtues of IBB at 81

The Registrar/Chief Executive, National Examinations Council (NECO), Prof Dantani Wushishi, has described Former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida as a quintessential leader whose contributions to the development of Nigeria will remain indelible in the sand of time.

Prof Wushishi in a statement to felicitate with the elder statesman for attaining the milestone of 81 years on earth, described him as a bastion of knowledge that has impacted positively on the lives of Nigerians.

He stated that it would not be out of place to describe Gen. Babangida as the architect and father of modern Nigeria, in view of the numerous reforms which he introduced when he was at the saddle as Military President.

The NECO Registrar prayed to Allah to grant the elder statesman good health and long life to enable him continue to provide the required mentorship to young Nigerians.
