House of Representatives has rejected a motion seeking to compel examination bodies such as JAMB, WAEC and NECO to register students free of charge for the 2023-2024 examination.
This followed the adoption of a motion by Rep. Anamero Dekeri during plenary in Abuja on Wednesday.
Presenting the motion, Dekeri said that the removal of fuel subsidiary by the government had negatively impacted on most Nigerians, particularly the low income earners.
He also said that profiteers were taking undue advantage of the situation by increasing cost of essential commodities thereby further pooporising the people.
Alhassan Ado-Doguwa however kicked against Ihonvbere amendment, while calling for caution, adding that the way the motion was going, would put some of them in trouble.
When Speaker Tajudeen Abbas put the motion to voice votes, the lawmakers voted that the motion be stepped down.
