The National Examinations Council (NECO) has postponed the ongoing Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations indefinitely.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Sunday by NECO Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani.
According to him, the board’s decision to postpone the exams was due to the current security challenges, occasioned by the #EndSARS protests.
The Governing Board further resolved, that when normalcy returns, the Council will continue with the conduct of the examinations in all States.
While regretting any inconveniences this postponement may cause its esteemed stakeholders, the Council has however taken the decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examination procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination.
