NAN reports that Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu, had on July 7, said that Nigerian students would not be participating in the 2020 WASSCE.

Ayo said

“However, there is wisdom on the part of government. The outbreak of COVID-19 during the period is better imagined than experienced.

“And since the situation of the pandemic affects the entire country, it is understandable that there be a delay in having the examination and not outright cancellation.

“Therefore, it is better for the Federal Government to thread on the part of caution than to allow our students to fall victims of the disease,” he said.

Ayo however advised the Federal Government on needs to intensify efforts in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic so that students can return to school.

The vice chancellor stressed the need for the Federal Government to ensure compliance with all the WHO precautionary measures to further curb the spread of COVID-19.

Ayo said that delay in taking the 2020 WASSCE examinations would lead to prolonged 2020/2021 admission exercise. (NAN)
