From Mathew Jwantu, Minna.
The National Examinations Council says it has not shifted the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) as rumoured.
The rumour circulating on social media is the “pinnacle of fake news”, says a press statement issued by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division Malam Azeez Sani.
Only the 2020 National Common Entrance (NCEE) was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, says the statement.
The body, according to the statement has not reviewed any of its remaining Examination Time Tables (BECE) and (SSCE), neither is it contemplating such.
“The general public has been 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” Azeez stated.
