As president Muhammad Buhari appointed Goodwill Obioma as the chief executive and registrar of the national examination council, on 15th May 2020 which was signed by minister of education Adamu Adamu.
The signing and appointing of new national examination council registrar, brought out rumours going round saying that NECO Candidates will be returning to schools. And probably writing their exams before West African examinations council (WAEC).
This rumours was based on the fact that five countries writing WAEC has never concluded on when to write the exam. Honesty all are false because the minister of state for education by name Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has revealed that the federal government has plans for schools to resume nationwide. But it won’t be based on people’s assumption that NECO students will resume schools before others, in preparation of their upcoming exams.
Nwajiuba gives further explanation on why exam classes (WAEC/NECO), may not be allowed to resume schools before others. He said, they’re so many reasons why WAEC and NECO students will not be allowed to resume schools before others.
He revealed the fact saying that some public schools are up to 250 students in each class, as he assumes a situation where up to 250 students are writing their West African Examination or National examination in a small classroom or hall.
He asked if number of students can maintain social distancing being one of the preventive measures given by the Nigerian center for disease control (NCDC).
He concluded by revealing that the federal government has urged NECO and WAEC candidates to wait until announcement is made concerning on when schools will reopen.
The minister gave students parental advice by telling them to read their books, to avoid examination malpractice which the country as a whole will never allow happening.
