COVID-19: Nigerian Government Gives Updates On 2020 WAEC, NECO and NABTEB Exams
The federal government has said it is working to bring the timetables for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) examinations closer.
Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, stated this on Monday, while speaking at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) for COVID-19.
“It requires six weeks to complete the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) examinations.

“We are working to bring the timetable closer.
“I have just finished a meeting with the representatives of WAEC, NECO & 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 examinations indefinitely, in a bid to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
UPDATE 16: Why schools can’t reopen now, by PTF
The Presidential Task Force(PTF) on COVID-19 has explained why schools cannot reopen now.
It said the decision was part of measures being taken to protect vulnerable Nigerians who may have some underlying infections.
National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu, said the decision to restrict gathering in churches and mosque was informed by the fact that most of those who go there are within vulnerable Nigerians who may have underlying illnesses.
He said the PTF was working closely with the Ministry of Education to work out a resumption plan for schools in view of the fact that majority of students may be living with the vulnerable group of Nigerians they were striving to protect.
He said that the plan may be to allow those who were supposed to write examinations to do so saying “we don’t want what has happened to affect the next academic session”.
He said 20 percent of Nigerian have underlying infections, adding the government has a responsibility to protect them against infection, hence the suggestion by government for people to stay at home.
