EndSARS: NECO again shifts exams over insecurity

Securities battle to quell violence in many Nigerian states after thugs hijacked EndSARS protests

From Mathew Jwantu, Minna.

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has shifted examination papers meant for Thursday 22nd October 2020, Friday 23rd October 2020 and Saturday 24th October 2020 due to “security challenges” an official statement says.

Mr. Azeez Sani, Head Information and Public Relations Division of NECO in the press statement said the affected papers are now to hold 17th, 18th and 19th November 2020.

“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”, Azeez stated.
