We're Not Rescinding The Decision To Cancel WAEC And Suspension Of School Resumption - FG
Despite the public outcry and criticism of the decision of the government not to open school till further notice and the cancellation of the secondary school final examination, the Federal Government has said there’s no going back on its decision to halt schools’ resumption and postpone participation in final examinations (WASSCE) for secondary school students.
Confirming this after the eighth virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, Minister of State for Education, Chief Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said the position remained unchanged.
He however pointed out the Ministry was still consulting with education stakeholders on what the best position should be, adding the West African Examination Council (WAEC) had also started consultations with West African nations on a possibility of shifting dates.
“We are still meeting with parents over the decision of the Ministry. What the Minister said reflects the true position of the Ministry; we are not confident yet that everywhere is safe, the numbers from the NCDC are still alarming and we have put this before parents and all the stakeholders in the the Education ecosystem, we are still meeting with them. In fact, there’s a stakeholders’ meeting convened for Monday.
“WAEC on its own part is also negotiating with other West African countries to look at possible shift in date. Once they are through with that meeting and hopefully when we are through with the consultation with stakeholders, if there’s any change in the Ministry’s position, we will communicate, but as it stands, the position of the Honourable Minister, as communicated to you last week, remains the position of the Ministry until further evidence to the contrary or further agreements that may alter those arise,” Nwajiuba said.
