- NECO said the delivery truck had left its take-off point well in advance two days earlier to deliver examination materials to some states and has been held up in the blockage since then.
The National Examination Council has announced a new date for Computer Studies Practical’s slated for Monday, October 19, 2020.
The new date for NECO examination is November 16, 2020
In a statement signed the Head, Information and Public Relations Division, NECO, Azeez Sani, on Sunday, he said the decision was taken because of the ongoing #ENDSARS protest which is affecting human and vehicular movement.
Mr Sani explained that the protest had affected the supply of examination materials, “This is to inform the general public and especially candidates that the National Examinations Council (NECO) has been constrained to reschedule the Paper I Computer Studies Practical’s earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19 October 2020, 10 am to 1 pm. The examination of this paper will now hold on Monday 16 November 2020, 10 am-1 pm.
The statement read: “The NECO delivery truck had left its take-off point well in advance two days 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 the 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 protest continues to spread across major cities in Nigeria as the APC-led government promised to find solutions to the yearnings of the Nigerian youths.
