WAEC Defies Nationwide Strike, Says Examination Continues

Mrs. T.A.Y. Lawson, the Branch Controller (Ekiti) of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), says the nationwide strike set to begin on Monday will not interfere with the examinations throughout the country.

Lawson announced this in a letter to principals and school proprietors in Ekiti State titled “Notice of Commencement of an Indefinite Strike by NLC and TUC” late Friday.

The letter reads: “The attention of management has been drawn to a notice of the commencement of an indefinite strike by NLC and TUC effective Monday, June 3, 2024.

“Please be formally informed that the conduct of WASSCE SC 2024 goes on as scheduled.”

According to her, “the examination body shares the burden of the unions, but it was important that students shouldn’t be at the receiving end by missing the ongoing examination in Nigeria and other West African states.

For the aforesaid reason, WAEC will conduct the exam, and school principals, supervisors, parents, and the general public should please take note and make adequate arrangements for their candidates to sit the exam.
