BREAKING: Nigerian students won’t write 2020 WAEC – FG

Final year secondary school students in Nigeria won’t participate in the forthcoming West African Examination Council(WAEC) examinations, the Federal Government has declared.

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, who disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Wednesday after the week’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, also said there is no date for school resumption yet.

He said he would prefer Nigerian students lose an academic year to expose them to dangers. The minister said federal schools would remain closed until it is safe to reopen them.

He also urged state governments that have announced school resumption plans to rescind such.

Adamu stated that the West African Examinations Council could not determine the resumption date of schools for Nigeria.

He said he would prefer that Nigerian students lose an academic year than to expose them to heath dangers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
