Alh. Atiku Abubakar Reacts To The Federal Government And WAEC's Agreement On The Examinations Date.

The former Vice President of Nigeria, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the bilateral agreement between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to postpone the date of the WAEC examinations to September 5, 2020.

Alh. Atiku Abubakar, founder of AUN university & academy, declared that he was elated at the reports of the agreement between the two parties, and at the same time, pleased to receive the news that the government is in consultation with the school proprietors to meet up with the July 29th deadline given by the government for schools to arrive at the required guidelines for resumption. 

The Federal Government had earlier maintained that Nigerian secondary schools would not be participating in the regional exams initially slated to start on the 4th of August. The controversial decision of the Federal Government received mixed reactions from parents and stakeholders in education sector.

However, the stance taken by the Federal Government led to a series of meetings between the government officials and the WAEC representatives, in which the body agreed to shift the date of the exams at the request of the Nigerian government. Meanwhile, the Nigerian government proposes the 5th of September as a new date, however, WAEC representatives maintained that the body will have to consult other nations to arrive at new date.
