FG announces August 4 for WAEC to commence

THE Federal Government on Monday announced that the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) examinations for senior secondary school in Nigeria will take place between August 4 and September 5, 2020.

Bashir Ahmad, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, made this known on his twitter handle.

He stated that Emeka Nwajuba, the Minister of State for Education made the announcement  at the Presidential Task Force on COVID–19 daily briefing in Abuja.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, announced this on Monday at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

“From the 4th of August to the 5th of September, please take note. Last week the Chairman of the PTF announced that school facilities will be available for those who want to go into revision classes.

“The idea here is that we have a whole month from now till then, those who can and those who are willing; the states who are willing should make their schools available for their children to revise.” Nwajiuba said.

“We have done the most we can with our representatives at WAEC and we have, this afternoon, confirmed that the dates allotted for the exams will be from the 4th of August through to the 5th of September.”

According to him, the ministry will publish the local timings for the examinations after a meeting with authorities of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), among other stakeholders.

Nwajiuba disclosed that as soon as WAEC examinations were concluded, the government would take up the National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) examinations.
