The former Vice President of Nigeria, and PDP Presidential candidate in 2019 general election, Atiku Abubakar has commended the Federal Ministry of Education for their bold initiative in resuming the WAEC exams.
Atiku took to twitter to show his support to the government as he was initially not in support of the idea that the federal government canceled the WAEC exams for secondary students.
He explained that learning must go on, especially for exit stage students to complete school successfully as other countries have eased restrictions.
He said; “I commend the FMoE for acceding to the patriotic counsel that myself and other well-meaning Nigerians and organisations gave with regards to not cancelling the WASSCE exams. – AA”
“The announcement by the FMoE that the WAEC exam will hold in August is commendable. Learning must go on, especially for exit stage students. I do hope, however, that students writing the exams are well prepared through home study during the lockdown. I wish them the very best.”
