The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) in Lagos State has said Senior Secondary School students will resume on August 3.

According to the president of NAPPS Lagos Chapter, Amusa Olawale on Friday, he said there was a plan to ensure the West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is conducted in September.

He further added that they have been allowed to re-open schools if the requirements will be appropriately followed.
“In the last meeting the South-West governors had with the commissioners for education, they discussed how WASSCE would be conducted in September, because if these pupils don’t sit for the exam, the 2020/2021 session will be seriously affected,” he said
“We had a meeting with the Director General, Quality Assurance, Lagos State Ministry of Education and we shall be resuming on August 3.
“We have been given clearance for reopening of schools, but if a school does not have the requirements, they won’t be allowed to resume.

For this reason, we also set up NAPPS quality assurance committee to go round and ensure our members meet up with these requirements,” he added.


  1. Good development and we are happy with it. When government do not the requirements they set up by themselves, how are they going to provide assistance to these private yet busy collecting taxes from them. Nawa ooo

  2. This is good news as the pandemic is not leaving any time soon. Students that will seat for the WASSCE need to refreshen their brain for the exam. As long as proper guidelines are followed, schools should reopen. There is a difference between those that place much emphasis on education and those that say education is their Haram
