Good News To Teachers, Students In South-West As An Agreement Has Been Made For Schools To Resume For Final Exams

Over a while now, there have been a lot of issues going on about resumption of schools in Nigeria after Federal Government had initially agreed for schools to resume, only to reverse their statement after days that schools will no longer resume due to the rise of corona virus in the country.

It's been over 4 months now that teachers and students have been at home. Meanwhile, WAEC examinations date has been scheduled to hold on August 6, which was why FG had agreed initially to reopen until they changed their mind again.

Meanwhile, the Commissioners for Education in South-West states have revealed that they are ready to sit SS3 students and others for the forth-coming West African Examination Council (WAEC) after an online meeting which was attended by Development Agenda for Western Nigeria, Southwest Commissioners of Education, Special advisers on Education, and States Universal Basic Education Board.

The Director General, DAWN Commission, Mr Seye Oyeleye said they have agreed that August 3rd should be the resumption date for final year students.

They have called on all the states under South-West Zone to seek for postponement of WAEC Examinations from Federal Government for atleast 3 weeks from resumption date to enable final year students to prepare for their final examinations.

They also agreed that when schools resumes, all schools should put a lot of things in place like; incident managers and classroom wardens in all the schools.

They therefore ask states to approach WAEC to seek for postponement of WAEC Examinations date to August 24 to enable preparedness for all schools.

This is a good news to all teachers who have been at home doing nothing, and students who have been idle for over 4 months now, while their exams had been at stake due to the lock down of schools in the country.
