Professor Godswill Obioma, Registrar of the National Examination Council (NECO), died in Abuja on Monday, May 31.
Contrary to the reports earlier, TrillerTunes understands that Obioma gave up the ghost after a brief illness.
“’I am directed to inform all staff of the Council of the death of Prof. Godswill Obioma, Registrar/Chief Executive of the National Examination Council (NECO), who according to family sources, died yesterday 31st May 2021 after a brief illness. While staff are enjoined to remain calm, the Council prays for the peaceful repose of his soul,” a statement from Mustapha K. Abdul, the Council’s Director, Human Resource Management reads.
The 67-year-old Obioma was appointed as NECO Registrar about a year ago on May 14, 2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari, TrillerTunes understands.
