Update: Registrar of the National Examinations Council, Professor Godswill Obioma is dead

The Registrar of the National Examinations Council, Professor Godswill Obioma, is dead.

Obioma died on Monday night at his Minna residence in the Niger State capital.

The deceased’s son in a letter addressed to the Director Human Resource Management, NECO, Mustapha Abdul, attributed the death of his father to a “brief illness”.

The letter which one of our correspondents sighted read, “Dear Sir, this is to formally inform you that my father, Prof. Godswill Obioma, the Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO passed to eternal glory yesterday, 31/5/2021, after a brief illness.

“We request that you kindly notify the Board, Management and the entire staff of the Council of this development.

“We shall keep you duly informed.”

The 67-year-old indigene of Abia State was appointed NECO Registrar in May 2020.

Niger State in Nigeria’s North-Central has been a hotbed of killings and kidnappings of late as rampaging bandits terrorise the people of the state.
