HEADTEACHER of Excel College, Ejigbo in Lagos State, Kehinde Oke, has said the collapsed wing of the school building will not affect the National Examination Council (NECO) examinations.

Much as it is natural to feel the pain of such a loss in infrastructure,
we give glory to God because we lost no student, staff, or anybody at the end of the day.
“We want to assure our parents and students that we have taken the development in good faith
and working hard to mitigate its effects on resumption, especially
the remainder of the SS3 final examinations in the coming weeks.

Parents and students have nothing to fear.
We shall inform the relevant authorities of our plans and actions.
We guarantee the students the traditional quality environment for the examinations.’’
