In a statement released by NECO, Dr. Sununu urged the school’s staff and students to uphold Nigeria’s image as exemplary ambassadors not only in Saudi Arabia but across the Gulf States Cooperation Council. After a thorough evaluation of the school’s amenities, including examination halls, classrooms, laboratories, library, curriculum, and security, Nigeria International School Jeddah was deemed suitable for hosting NECO SSCE Internal exams and was granted full accreditation.

Prof. Wushishi emphasized the significance of school accreditation in ensuring that institutions possess adequate teaching and learning resources conducive to examinations.
