Hopes of students writing WAEC and other important exams to resume school on July 13, as earlier announced by Nigerian government have been dashed as schools will not open until covid-19 pandemic reduces drastically.

The federal government had announced July 13 as the reopening date for graduating students in Primary Six, JSS 3 and SSS 3.

Announcing the suspension after Wednesday’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in the State House, the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, said Nigerian schools would not be reopened until the COVID-19 pandemic drastically subsides.

He said also that Nigerian students would not participate in Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (SSCE) scheduled to commence on August 4, adding that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) had no right to determine resumption date for schools in Nigeria.

He also said Nigerian students would rather be made to lose an academic year than to be exposed to danger.
