The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said that the results of the 2020 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination set to be released today, has been postponed till next week.
The examination body said the postponement was due to the violence and arson in the country which affected some of its offices and as well as its operations nationwide.
Recall that the unrest that rocked the country, in the wake of the #EndSARS protests had forced governments to impose curfew in their respective states.
The Nigerian arm of the examination body tweeted that; “WASSCE SC 2020 Results Release Date: Dear candidates, the Council had planned to release the results today in fulfilment of our Project 45 but due to the curfew imposed last week, it had to be postponed till next week.
“The exact date will be made known soon”.
When contacted, the Head of Public Affairs, WAEC Nigeria, Demianus Ojijeogu, confirmed the development, saying that the examination body’s “Calabar Office, in Cross River State was looted, vandalised and burnt down by hoodlums.”
