Good News Looming for WAEC Candidates


Due to recent agitations from Nigerian students and parents on the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examinations, WAEC, the Federal Government of Nigeria has made few decisions in regards to the reopening of schools. 


The federal government disclosed that it is not yet safe for schools to reopen and that all activities across Nigerian schools must remain pending. 


This decision was communicated by the minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, after the eight virtual federal executive council meeting, on Wednesday. 


The good news there is that Nwajiuba also stated that WAEC is negotiating with other countries writing the exams, for a shift in date. Note that it was scheduled to start on 4th of August.


Nwajiuba also assured Nigerians that they were still speaking with major stakeholders in the country, and as soon as it is convenient enough and safe enough, schools will be reopened. 


He concluded by saying that there would be another stakeholder meeting by Monday, 20th July. 


Let us hope for the best.
