The National Examinations Council (NECO) has been constrained again by circumstances beyond its control and rescheduled the papers meant for Thursday 22 October 2020, Friday 23 October 2020 and Saturday 24 October 2020.
This was contained in a press statement issued by Azeez Sani, Head Information and Public Relations Division of NECO which was made available to journalusts yesterday in Minna.
Azeez added that the affected papers are now scheduled for 17th, 18th and 19th November 2020.
According to him, “the examination time table for these papers will be made available subsequently”.
“These changes were due to the security challenges, which led to the imposition of curfew and closure of schools by some state governments, in order to safeguard lives and properties. In the circumstances , it has become difficult for the Council to move examination materials across the country”, he stated
The Council prays that the Examinations will continue on Tuesday 27 October 2020,all things being equal, with the papers as originally scheduled in the examination time table. Noted that any inconvenience caused was regretted.
