The 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination has been postponed indefinitely.

The West African Examinations Council made this known in a statement on Friday.

The statement quoted WAEC Nigeria’s Head of National Office, Mr. Patrick Areghan, as saying that the examination scheduled to begin April 6, 2020, was postponed as a result of coronavirus pandemic.

Areghan said the timetable for the examination would be reviewed after the coronavirus pandemic situation improves.

The statement read, “The West African Examinations Council in Nigeria, nay, the West African sub-region, has decided to put on hold the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination for School Candidates, 2020, earlier scheduled to commence on April 6, 2020.

“This is as a result of the impact of the novel and deadly Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and the serious implications it has for the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2020, coupled with the anxieties it has generated among the populace.

“This decision is a demonstration of the organisation’s concern and support for the various protocols being put in place by the Federal and State Governments of Nigeria and the governments of the other member countries to check the spread of the disease.”

To be honest, I see no reason why Nigeria is seriously shutting everything down.

I repeat, they should dare not shut the economic activities down and tell people to stay indoors.


The best thing to do now is to close boarders, and stop flights from high risk countries.

This virus is said to be just with people who flew into the country. It hasn't spread to those living in the country.

So the govt should thread with caution so as to not cripple economic activities and bring a total collapse of the economy.

In this country, over 90 percent of Nigerians don't even have enough to eat for the day not to talk of surviving on savings if the govt dare to tell everybody to stay indoors..

Desperate times.

A very Important Question about Coronavirus: Will Covid-19 be considered a pandemic in two years from now?

Answer : That depends on us.
Please, if you have a cough and/or a fever, stay at home and stay away from others.
You probably have a cold, but if you’re a minimally symptomatic carrier, you can do your part by making sure your particular Covid-19 ends at you and doesn’t get passed on to another person.
We pray that will never be anyone's portion.

This is the time for us all to come together as a nation.
We must unite as one to overcome this virus.
We can all start by CLEANLINESS,
Washing our hands, and keeping our immediate environment clean and safe.
