The National Examination Council (NECO) has announced the postponement of the ongoing Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination indefinitely.
The Governing Board of NECO decided at its Special Meeting last week after it reviewed the conduct of the on-going 2020 examination nationwide.
In a statement dated 21st October 2020, the council informed the general public of rescheduling some papers of the 2020 on-going SSCE because of the inability of the agency to deliver examination materials to some states as a result of curfew.
But rising from Thursday’s meeting, the Governing Board resolved that the 2020 SSCE be postponed indefinitely given the current security challenges, occasioned by the #ENDSARS protests, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examinations in some parts of the country.
Head, Information and Public Relations Division, NECO, Azeez Sani, confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday
