NECO postpones exams due to intensified #EndSARS protests


The National Examinations Council has postponed its examination.

The examination body announced this on Sunday in a statement.

This followed the intensification of the #EndSARS protest across the country.

The Council through the Head, Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, said in the statement: “NECO has been constrained to reschedule the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19 October 2020, 10am to 1pm, for Monday 16 November 2020, 10am-1pm.”

The statement said its truck ferrying papers to different parts of the country have been blocked from getting to their destinations.


Sani said: “The NECO delivery truck had left its take off point well in advance on Friday 16 October 2020, earlier to deliver examination materials to some States and has been held up in the blockage since then.”

While regretting any inconveniences the rescheduling may cause, he assured that the affected examination materials have been retrieved and are intact.
