Nigerian Students Won’t Write 2020 WAEC – Federal Government Makes U-Turn

The Federal Government of Nigeria has stated that final year secondary school students in Nigeria won’t participate in the forthcoming West African Examination Council (WAEC) examinations. This comes few days after the government stated that schools in the country will reopen in August for final year students to take their final exams.

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.

He appealed to States that have announced the resumption of school in their states to reconsider their position so as not to jeopardize the lives of the students, adding, “It is not safe to reopen schools now.”

This is coming when the Kenyan Government is asking schools in country to refund this year school fees back to students and their parents. The country has also gone ahead to declare the 2020 academic year null and void.

So far, the corona virus has affected over 11 million people around the world.
