The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it supported the verdict of the Federal Government to stop Senior Secondary School 3 pupils from participating in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination earlier scheduled to commence on August 4.

The union advised the government to close down schools until 2021 to ensure adequate preparations, citing the case in some countries such as Kenya.

On Saturday that the Federal Ministry of Education met with officials of the West African Examination Council in Abuja and resolved to announce a new date for the examination

“If they put all the things in place, including social and physical distancing, sanitisers, kitting the children as we see in other places, decontamination with water flowing in the schools and all the gadgets, why not? So, if government can meet all these conditions, then they can reopen the schools. But if they cannot meet all these conditions, they should not experiment with even 10 students in any school.”
