Oyo State government says it is ready to present candidates for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) as well as other external examinations.
Chairman of the state Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Dr. Nureni Adeniran said this yesterday in Ibadan.
Adeniran said judging from the readiness of the state through the preparation of students in terminal classes, students in the state would sit for any external examinations, including WASSCE and the Joint Admission Matriculation Examination (JAMB).
His words, “Earlier, the Federal Government said they cancelled WAEC but we thank God that they have reversed themselves. WAEC is conducted by a regional body comprising many countries, Nigeria inclusive and the COVID-19 pandemic is global. So, whatever the body says should be the final; not what Nigeria thinks should happen.
“But nonetheless, Oyo State is on top of the situation.
During the monitoring exercise, Adeniran stated that the government would not condone any form of illegality in the education sector, especially in the primary schools across the State.
