Nigeria, four other countries discuss the postponement of WASSCE
Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia, and Liberia have begun deliberations on delaying the West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE), an official has said.
The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said this in Abuja on Friday.
He said Nigeria and the four countries are looking at a recent date for this year’s WASSCE, which Nigeria has temporarily pulled out from.
“We met with WAEC on Monday and (we) have agreed to further consult
with four other countries on a recent examination date,” he said.
Recall, wotzup.ng reported that the Nigerian government revoked its earlier announcement on the resumption of schools.
It also said no Nigerian school will take part in the WASSCE earlier scheduled for August 5 to September 5.
The decisions were to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among students.
