ADEOLA AJAYI, EKITI
The Former Nigeria Vice president Atiku Abubakar, indicated that the decision of the Federal Government not to allow resumption on the West African Senior School Certificate is poorly bad.
According to Atiku, will cause a set back for 1.5 million Nigerian youth who write the examination annually.
“To abruptly cancel this examination is to set back our nation’s youth, and place them behind their contemporaries in other West African nations. This is perilous, because Foreign Direct Investments and other economic indicators, are tied to the educational indexes of nations.”
” We could mobilise all available public and private infrastructures including primary schools, stadia, and cinemas, for the examinations,” he said.
“In the alternative, the federal government can prevail on WAEC to have staggered examinations with a different set of questions for each shift. Doing so will allow WAEC Nigeria implement social distancing and achieve the goal of carrying out the examinations. A win-win scenario.”
