A statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, invited interested persons to submit applications, which must include details of applicants’ Parents/Guardians’ Phone Numbers and other relevant contact details, to the Office of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education with all other necessary documents.
Mrs. Adefisayo added that applicants into JSS II are expected to attach their Second and Third term results of JSS I, while SSS I applicants are to attach the First and Second Term Results of JSS III with the BECE registration number or result. Also, each applicant must present the Parent/Guardian’s Tax Clearance Certificate.
“Applicants for Intra and Inter-District transfer as well as those intending to transfer from private schools are expected to pay the transfer fee of N5,000 at any branch of Polaris Bank with Transfer Revenue Code: 4040096, Oracle Code: 32534, Agency Code: 4280000, Payer ID: C-374866 and Account Number: 4030010449.

The Commissioner pointed out that the transfer exercise into public secondary schools is done annually for students seeking transfer from one school to the other for various reasons, noting, however, that there is no transfer into Model Colleges/Upgraded Secondary Schools and all transfer requests are based on vacancies.
Warning that the provision of false information and/or attachment of falsified document(s) will lead to automatic disqualification, Mrs. Adefisayo emphasised that the submission of applications closes on Monday, 22nd August, 2022, and there will be no extension of the process.
