WASSCE: 4 Countries that May postpone WASSCE because of Nigeria

The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) as the name implied is not just written only in Nigeria but also in some other west Africa countries such as Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Gambia because they are English speaking countries like Nigeria so it is easier conducting the exams for them. West African Examination Council (WAEC) has already issued date of examination to these countries which should take place from 5th August to 5th September 2020. Remember the date was first postponed in March because of COVID19.

However Nigerian government has opt out on this date as a result of increase in the number of case of COVID19 in the country. Despite the objections from many stakeholders. Federal government also wants to collaborate with these four countries on a convenient date for the examination to take place.

WEAC as we know, has one syllabus which is used in all these countries, and it also uses it to set same examination for them at almost the same time and date. Therefore, these countries may not go ahead with the examination due to examination malpractices that might occur from different dates of examination among the countries.

Can this country go ahead with the examination without Nigeria. What is the best option in this situation, Should the countries agree with Nigeria on a convenient date?
