The Federal Ministry of Education has assured that candidates who missed the 2021 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) in the South-East will be afforded another opportunity to write the examination.

 

 

The Editorngr.com reports that there has been compliance with sit-at-home order in parts of the South-East even when the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who started the stay-at-home idea, rescinded the order.

Lawmakers from the zone recently decried the incident at Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume, Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State, where the English examination organised by the West Africa Examination Council, WAEC, on Monday was ruthlessly scuttled by armed men, who chased away the students, teachers, and examiners before setting ablaze motorcycles belonging to the teachers.

While monitoring some examination centres in Abuja on Monday, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Mr. Sonny Echono frowned at the disruption of examination centres in the South-East, particularly the incident of September 13, 2021.

He however assured that the ministry will put modalities in place to ensure that the candidates who missed the examination in the South East are given other opportunities to write the examination.

The official went on to express satisfaction with the conduct of the examination across the country which was written by over 1.57 million candidates.

According to him, “We are very pleased that all around the country; examinations are going on peacefully as we have a total of over 19,000 exams centres across the country with over 1.57 million registered candidates.
