The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it supported the decision of the Federal Government to stop Senior Secondary School 3 pupils from partaking in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination earlier scheduled to commence on August 4.
The Union advised the government to follow the footsteps of Kenya who have taken the bold step in shutting every academic activity in the country till 2021.
The Federal Ministry of Education met with officials of the West African Examination Council in Abuja and resolved to announce a new date for the examination.
Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Minister of State for Education while speaking in a briefing said that The Government will consult with other four nations to pick a new date for the examination.
However, While speaking in an interview, ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi stated that no sensible government will take such chances in reopening schools and put lives of innocent children at great danger, except parents would be asked to sign an undertaking.
Do you think the government should open up schools for children to go write their exams with COVID-19 still increasing? Drop your view in the comment section and don’t forget to share. Thank you.
