NECO reschedules exam over #ENDSARS protest.


A new date has been fixed for the National Examination Council’s (NECO) Paper I Computer Studies Practical which was previously scheduled for today (Monday) between 10 am and 1 pm.

The paper has now been rescheduled for the 16th of November, 2020, between 10 am and 1 pm.

This was confirmed in a statement released by Azeez Sani, the Head, Information and Public Relation Division of NECO, on Sunday.

Sani explained the resolution was due to the #EndSARS protests that restricted movement in Benin, the Edo state capital.

“The NECO delivery truck had left its take-off point well in advance on Friday, October 16, 2020, earlier to deliver examination materials to some states and has been held up in the blockage since then.

“The council wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that the affected examination materials have been retrieved and are intact,” the statement read.

Sani said the decision was taken in order to maintain the integrity and safety of its examinations.
