NECO reschedules exam, alleges protesters seize materials’ truck

The National Examinations Council has announced the rescheduling of the Paper I Computer Studies Practical earlier fixed for today (Monday) between 10am and 1pm.

The paper has now been fixed for Monday, November 16, 2020, between 10am and 1pm.

A statement issued on Sunday by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division, NECO, Azeez Sani, titled: ‘Rescheduling of Paper I Computer Studies Practical in the ongoing 2020 SSCE’, said the decision was caused by the #EndSARS protests that blocked the free movement at the city entrance gate in Benin.

He said, “The NECO delivery truck had left its take-off point well in advance on Friday, October 16, 2020, 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 and are intact.”
