The National Examinations Council (NECO) has postponed the ongoing Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations indefinitely.

As was contained in a statement  by NECO Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, the board’s decision to postpone the exams is due to the current security challenges, occasioned by the #EndSARS protests.

“Arising from that meeting, the Governing Board resolved that the 2020 SSCE (Internal) be postponed indefinitely in view of the current security challenges, occasioned by the #ENDSARS protests, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examinations in some parts of the country,” the statement partly read.

In making this decision, the Board noted that due to these security challenges:

“Some state governments imposed curfew and closed schools in order to safeguard lives and property; in the circumstances, it has become difficult for the Council to move examination materials across the country; students in the affected locations were unable to sit for the papers already scheduled in the examination time table.”

The Governing Board further resolved, that when normalcy returns, the Council will continue with the conduct of the examinations in all States.

“While regretting any inconveniences this postponement may cause , the Council has however taken this decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examination procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination.”
