National Examinations Council (NECO) said it has not postponed the conduct of the the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examinations and the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) as rumoured in the media.
A statement signed by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division of the ccouncil, Azeez Sani, said the information was fake and did not emanate from the Council.
“NECO wishes to state categorically that apart from the 2020 National Common Entrance (NCEE) that was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Council has not reviewed any of its remaining Examination Time Tables (BECE) and (SSCE), neither is it contemplating such for now”, the statement added.
It advised the general public to disregard such fake news, as the Council was monitoring the prevailing situation in the country and would make official pronouncement on the examinations if there was need.
