Latest WAEC update: WAEC and NECO 2020 Postponed Indefinitely
The Federal government made this announcement yesterday. Naijaschoolz was meant to understand that the coronavirus pandemic is the main reason behind this shift.
Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba made this announcement at the daily briefing by the members of the presidential task force on covid-19 control in Abuja.
The two exams were scheduled to hold between May and June but has been Postponed Indefinitely.
Nwajiuba said also that 15 states had commenced electronic learning for pupils on their local television staions and radio channels following the stay-at-home orders of the federal and several state governments.
He also begged the parents to cooperate with the government to ensure that their children were made available to learn at the specified hours and channels.
The minister said the Government are really doing their best to ensure schools reopen but also stressed this cannot be achieved if everyone do not cooperate with the Government.
The official announcement
“We have announced that WAEC and NECO for the year have been postponed. This postponement is indefinite at the moment.
We will also be looking at what we will do for schools to reopen. As you recall, we asked that schools be vacated in the last part of March 2020 as soon as this pandemic broke out.
The lockdown in various parts of the country will definitely affect whether students and teachers come to school or not.
So, nobody can reopen schools until we have coordinated all efforts. We are also asking parents to help us.
We have made provisions online. The Directorate of Information and Communication Technology in conjunction with the Universal Basic Education Commission, the coordinating agency, will anchor an alliance with State Universal Basic Education Boards in all the states so that they can key into our design.”
