Must read

The Branch Controller (Ekiti) of West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Mrs T.A.Y. Lawson has stated that the nationwide strike set to begin on Monday will not interfere with the examinations  throughout the country.

This was contained in a letter to principals and school proprietors in Ekiti State titled: “Notice of commencement of indefinite strike by NLC and TUC” with reference number EK/BC/SC/EXAM/07/Vol.1/89 late Friday.

The letter reads: “The attention of Management has been drawn to a notice of the Commencement of Indefinite Strike by NLC and TUC effective, Monday, 3rd June 2024.

“Please be formally informed that the conduct of WASSCE SC 2024 goes on as scheduled.”

She noted the examination body shares the burden of the unions but it was important that students shouldn’t be at the receiving end by missing the ongoing examination in Nigeria and other West African states.

“In as much as we share the concerns of the unions and the generality of Nigerians, the WASSCE SC is going on across the member Countries of WAEC and the Nigerian Child should not be put to a disadvantage of missing the exam.

“For the aforesaid reason, WAEC will conduct the exam and School Principals, supervisors, parents and the general public should please take note and make adequate arrangements for their candidates to sit the exam.

“Kindly be guided accordingly,” it concluded.
