The central government has said it is attempting to bring the plans for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) assessments closer.
Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, expressed this on Monday, while talking at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) for COVID-19.
“It requires six weeks to complete the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) examinations.
“We are working to bring the timetable closer.
“I have just finished a meeting with the representatives of WAEC and NABTEB and I understand how that worries our parents at the moment and how anxious our children are to know what next,” Nwajiuba said.
In April this year, the Nigerian government suspended both WAEC and NECO assessments inconclusively, in an offer to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
