NO WAEC FOR SCHOOLS UNDER THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, after the week's virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, revealed that the Federal Government has decided that schools under the Ministry of Education will not take part in the 2020 WAEC SSCE for the time being.
The Minister also said that the final year students preparing for their Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) will not be allowed to return to school, contrary to the earlier announcement concerning their resumption.
According to Mallam Aamu Adamu, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) cannot determine the resumption date for Nigerian schools. He added that, no schools under his ministry will resume until the school environments are considered safe for both students and teachers.
