House Of Reps Members Disagree With FG On WASSCE

The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education, Julius Ihonvbere on Friday questioned the new directive of the Federal Government on West Africa Examination Council (WAEC).

The lawmaker in a press statement frowned at the directive to halt participation of students in the forthcoming examination due to COVID-19.

He noted that the Minister did not consult stakeholders and, adding that the announcement lacked the needed clarification.

“He did not inform the country if this was in agreement with other West African leaders or in consultation with the examination bodies, the state governments and other stakeholders in the education sector.

“The Minister did not also inform the public if the decision was the outcome of a meeting with all State Governments that are in charge of all but the Unity Secondary Schools that are owned by the Federal government.”

Mr. Ihonvbere said the directive of the federal government is confusing. He added that it will create, “distortions and disarticulations in the sector are only getting worse.”

He urged the Federal Ministry of Education “not chicken out of its responsibilities but take charge, provide policy direction, engage the states and other stakeholders”.

He advised the federal government to provide the needed environment for students to write their exams.

  1. Abi o! oga Rep.

  2. They should allow children write if others are writing now and provide strict guidelines to this effect

  3. I wonder, students should write their exams. Those of them that stay in the hostel can still maintain SD. Since only the SS3 students will be around then the entire school hostels should be used by them. By so doing, few people will stay in each room/hall.

  4. They should allow them do their wassce

  5. These students have registered for this exam, some parents even borrowed to register their children. Fed govt can make provision for these students to write the exam. They can write on Saturdays and Sundays so that they won't spend much time in the schools.

  6. This administration is so disjointed. One will say one thing another will still come out n say another thing. Kukuma divide this buhari govt into 2.
