Opeyemi Adelere

The National Examination Council (NECO) said it has not postponed the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) due to the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Head of Information and Public Relations, Mr. Azez Sani, said in a statement that the examination body had neither reviewed any of its remaining Examination Time Tables (BECE) and (SSCE), nor contemplated such for now.

“The attention of the Management of the National Examinations Council has been drawn to the barrage of fake news trending on the social media purporting that the Council has shifted the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) due to the prevailing situation in the Country.

“NECO wishes to state categorically that apart from the 2020 National Common Entrance (NCEE) that was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Council has not reviewed any of its remaining Examination Time Tables (BECE) and (SSCE), neither is it contemplating such for now.

“The general public is urged to disregard such fake news, as the Council is monitoring the prevailing situation in the Country and will make official pronouncement on the examinations if the need arises”, the statement read.
