According to the statement release by Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) has announced that it supports the Federal Government decision to stop Nigerian Senior Secondary School from participating in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination scheduled earlier to begin on August 4.

The union urged the government to shut down schools to ensure sufficient arrangements until 2021, adding that there's case in some countries like Kenya.

A popular news correspondents announced on Saturday that the Federal Ministry of Education had agree with West African Examination Council officials in Abuja and agreed to fix new date, on 4th of August for the exam to commence.

State Education Minister Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba also suggested that, while announcing COVID-19 mandatory school guidelines that must be enforced before 29 July, the government would consult with four other WAEC countries to set a new date.

The president of the ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who made the recommendations in an interview with Sunday PUNCH, said that no fair government should take such opportunities unless parents were told to sign an agreement.

ASUU President further disclosed that, Kenya announced that until next year (2021) they have closed all their schools; are they not part of the country to write WASSCE?, I think government should be more concern of our children's safety first. If closing all our schools till next year will safeguard the lives of our children and health, then let the school remain closed, he added.
