The National Business and Technical Examinations Board were founded in 1992 to domesticate craft level examinations previously conducted by City & Guilds, Pittman’s, and the Royal Society of Arts throughout the United Kingdom in conformity with the principles of the National Policy on Education.

Its formation was the culmination of a 15-year evolutionary process in which FOUR Government Panels were established at various periods to assess the place and structure of public examinations in our educational system.


Develop as a globally recognised assessment body for craftsmen and technicians.


NABTEB is a vision-led, mission-driven public institution with the following vision: To be a Globally Recognised Assessment and Certification Body Preparing Candidates for the Workplace and Academic/Professional Excellence.

(ii) Good government: If the government policies are best-intentioned, the people will continue to have trust and confidence in such a government.

For example, in the areas of providing social amenities and infrastructure, maintenance of law and order and rule of law in peace.

(iii) Legitimacy through periodic election: A free and fair election is a symbol of legitimacy and it registers the support of the people.

(iv) Customs and tradition: Respect for the established customs and traditions of the society can help to sustain or determine legitimacy e.g. hereditary as in the British monarchy.

(v) Foreign policy objectives: The extent of foreign policy objectives initiated by a country determines the level of acceptance given to it by other countries.

(vi) Wider scope of political participation:-The ability of the government to involve all sections of the people in governance helps to determine legitimacy, e.g. political appointment and different interest groups.

(vii) Ideology: The ability of the government to uphold the tenets of the state’s ideology will help determine legitimacy, e.g. communism in china and capitalism in the USA.

(viii) Charisma of the leader: This could be based on their honesty of purpose, uprightness or oratory.

The parliamentary system of government is defined as a system of government in which the head of the state is distinct from the head of government.

Both offices and functions attached to them are in the hands of two individuals, unlike the presidential system where the two offices (head of state and government) are fused

(Pick any five)

(i) The head of state: The head of state is either the queen or president.

(iv) Ministerial appointment: The prime minister can only choose his ministers from party men in the legislature

(v) Fusion of power:-The prime minister and his ministers, forming part of the executive, are also part of the legislature, so there is a fusion of power between the executive and legislature
