NECO reschedules SSCE over EndSARS protests

The National Examinations Council, NECO, has rescheduled its Senior  School Certificate Examination, SSCE, Paper 1, Computer Studies Practicals earlier slated for Monday, October 19, 2020.


NECO's Head of Information and Public Relations, Mr Azeez Sani, said in a statement on Sunday that the move follows the ENDSARS protest that blocked the free movement of transport at the entrance gate of  Benin City.


Sani said the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19 October 2020, by 10am to 1pm, will now hold on Monday 16 November 2020 from 10am to 1pm.




"​This unforeseen incident has been caused by the ENDSARS protest that blocked the free  movement of  transport at the City entrance gate Benin. 


"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. 


"The Council wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that the affected examination materials have been retrieved intact and are in custody of NECO’s vault. 


​"While regretting any inconveniences this rescheduling may cause our esteemed stakeholders, the Council has however taken this decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examinations procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination," the statement said.
