ASUU, the Academic Staff Union of Universities have given a response to the Government's demand, agreeing with them not to resume school as earlier scheduled.


ASUU confirms with the government's decision to stop the senior secondary school from partaking or participating in the West Africa Senior School Leaving Examination scheduled to begin on August 4th.


ASUU advised the Federal government to shut down the school and school activities generally till 2021, to ensure adequate preparation. They urged the government to do as other countries such as Kenya, is currently doing.


It was reported that the Federal Ministery Of Education met on Saturday, with Officials of the West African Examination Council in Abuja, to resolve the issues of announcing a new date for WAEC to commence.


According to the interview the president of ASUU gave on punch newspaper, he said :

" Look, Kenya has said they have closed all their schools till next year (2021); they too have exams to write. Safety first. If it means closing the schools until next year to safeguard the lives of Nigerian children and safeguard the health of all Nigerians, so be it.


So, if that will help us to address cases that can lead to an increase in mortality, I think Nigerians should go that way and all of us should see the reason for it. If they need to cancel admission for the year, it is good for them. Life matters first, people must have a life first before they can go to university. Are the universities ready to work now?


He further goes on to say:


Our position is that they should not experiment with the lives of our children. Nobody can tell; the situation may soon normalize and they can do their exams and there is another opportunity for external candidates around November. So, it’s not as if the door is totally closed".



ASUU president also said that he have seen no evidence that shows that schools were secured enough for students to start school.


Since the announcement, it has sparked a lot of reactions from Nigerians and has got people opposing or supporting the motion.

Although the decision may seem harsh, I believe that their reason is genuine and every student out there should understand their reason, which is keeping the youths safe.
