The Federal Government has announced that secondary school students preparing for WAEC examinations will reopen for academic activities on August 4.
A statement released July 27, by the spokesman of the Ministry of Education, Ben Bem Goong, said students in exit classes are to resume immediately after the Salah breaks so they can take their WAEC examinations scheduled to begin August 17.
Goong further 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 government had earlier suspended the reopening of schools due to an increase in the incidence of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
