Goong said this decision was taken at the virtual consultative meeting of the Federal Ministry of Education, Commissioners of Education in the 36 states, the Nigerian Union of Teachers, Proprietors of Private schools, and Chief Executive of Examination bodies.

The Federal government had initially suspended the reopening of schools due to the increase in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

  1. i hope the Government is not trying to fail the students some of them are yet to do the regular mock exams in schools before the 5 months break from school, are they gonna be allowed to take the mock exams?, how much time will they have for revision? WAEC should think about this before fixing the exam dates since they will be returning to school allow them prepare well to avoid massive failures . Some parents paid through their teeth things are hard , but life must go on amidst this pandemic.
