This year’s West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WAEC) and the National Examinations Council (NECO) scheduled to hold in May and June have been postponed indefinitely over the raging COVID-19 pandemic.
“This was disclosed on Tuesday by the Minister of State for Education Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba at the daily Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja.
“We have announced that WAEC and NECO for the year have been postponed. This postponement is indefinite at the moment.
“We will also be looking at what we will do for schools to reopen. As you recall, we asked that schools be vacated in the last part of March 2020 as soon as this pandemic broke out,” the minister said.
