Breaking: NECO suspends SSCE examinations, orders staff to return home

Following deterioration of the security situation in the country occasioned by the #EndSARS protests, the National Examination Council (NECO) has stopped the conduct of the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE). 

It was learnt that the decision to stop the conduct of the examination followed the declaration of 24-hour curfew by some state governors, especially those of Lagos, Ogun, Edo and Imo, where the #EndSARS protest had assumed destructive dimensions.

The examination body had conducted the Economics paper test on Tuesday, while the Physics practical paper took place yesterday without some candidates in some states writing the tests because of the protest and curfew.

The Council directed its examiners and invigilators to return to their various offices and await further instructions.
