Schools remain shut indefinitely as FG reverses self, stops WAEC exams

The Federal Government has reversed itself on the re-opening of schools, saying that no school should open or participate in the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSE) earlier scheduled for August 5th and September 5th.

The examination was postponed indefinitely due to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

Minister of State for Education, Chief Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, had on Monday announced that the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations will take place between August and September.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, told State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerian schools will not reopen any time soon until it is safe to do so because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has therefore said that final year students preparing for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) will not be allowed to return to school contrary to earlier announcement.

Adamu stated that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) cannot 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 dangers.
