Hi, please hit our following button. Thanks

Sequence to the killings, kidnapping, shooting, fighting in Borno, some persons have decided to use the classroom for poultry farm.

This happened as a result of stay safe, stay at home, shutdown and lock down in the country. Where the students are at home, just to stay safe, while their classroom have been used for poultry farm.

Recently, WAEC appeal for PPE for JSS 3 and SSS 3 ahead of their examination that was supposed to take place in the month of August. Below is their request, estimate and statement.

“There are many well-spirited individuals donating face masks and hand sanitizers, that is what we are asking for.

“Even if we are going to give only one washable, reusable face mask and one bottle of hand sanitizer to every staff and supervisor that will not cost us less than N50 million.

“And if we make it two per staff and supervisor, that will not cost us less than N100 million"

Immediately their appeal was made known to the general public, the Education body to the Fed Government of Nigeria, pulled out from supporting the WAEC leaders.

Education Minister Mallam Adamu Adamu said JSS 3 and SSS 3 pupils will not be participating in the upcoming West African Examination Council (WAEC) examinations.

Reasons been that, he would prefer that pupils lose an academic session than to expose them to dangers.

To make it look interesting, The House of Representatives, disagreed with the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on the cancellation of the West African Senior Secondary School Examinations, insisting that action was aimed at truncating the future of Nigerian children.

Their reasons were, Education Minister did not inform the country if his decision was in agreement with other West African leaders or in consultation with the examination bodies, the state governments and other stakeholders in the education sector.

While Nigerians were trying to digest that, the Joint Campus Committee of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Ondo State Axis faulted the cancellation of the West African School Certificate Examination (WASCE) in the country.

It said, Federal Government ought to put modalities in place to check spread of COVID-19 at the examination centres instead of outright cancellation.

The chairperson, NANS (JCC) Ondo Axis, Comrade Akinteye Babatunde, stated that while speaking to journalists in Akure in commemoration of the 8th remembrance anniversary of four students leaders who died in a road accident.

As a result of delay, in school resumption and postponment of WASSCE. The good people of Borno have decided to use the empty class rooms for their poultry farm, till when the federal government is ready to reopen schools or provide the necessary PPE for WAEC.
