The Governing Board of the National Examinations Council (NECO) has indefinitely postponed the on-going 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination.
The board in a statement signed by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division NECO, Azeez Sani, said its decision follows the current security challenges, occasioned by the End SARS protests.
We had reported that the board had last week reviewed its position following the protests and rescheduled some of its papers.
In a fresh review by the board, it resolved that the current unrest nationwide, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examination has led to curfews and close down of schools to safeguard lives and property.
‘‘Arising from that meeting, the Governing Board resolved that the 2020 SSCE (Internal) be postponed indefinitely in view of the current security challenges, occasioned by the End SARS protests, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examinations in some parts of the country.
‘‘In the circumstances, it has become difficult for the Council to move examination materials across the country. Students in the affected locations were unable to sit for the papers already scheduled in the examination time table’’.
The exam council further resolved, to continue the conduct of the examinations as soon as normalcy returned to all States.
It regretted the inconveniences the postponement would cause all stakeholders but say it took the decision to maintain the integrity and security of the examination procedures.
