He said that Lagos state had the highest number with over 23, 000 candidates. “Apart from Zamfara state, all the states of the federation recorded significant number of registered candidates.

The seven states that had very low registration figures leading to the earlier postponement of the examination all recorded significant increase in the number of registered candidates before online registration closed.

The Acting Registrar, National Examination Council (NECO), Mr. Abubakar Gana has attributed the drop in the number of candidates in the 2019 Common Entrance Examination into Federal Government schools to lack of sponsorship by some politicians.
