The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has conducted the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), in Chibok Local Government, Borno State, the first time since the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in the area by Boko Haram insurgents, six years ago.

Schools in the local government were closed by the Federal Government following the abduction of the girls from the Government Girls’ Secondary School Chibok on April 14, 2014. The school has now been converted into a mixed school .

Recall that out of the 219 schoolgirls abducted by the insurgents, 107 have regained freedom after various rescue efforts and mediated negotiations between the Federal Government and the terrorists.


  1. Not yet over until it’s over, we really commend you for the job well done. At least you put in some efforts before you can achieve this giant step. Government should make sure that they provide adequate security for the students. Because anything may still occur and I pray that bad will not occur again in that area and Nigerian at large.

  2. We commend for this one that you have done, we say kudos to you and our gallant officers because without them it might not be possible. As as the place has been rescued from this bokoharam, they should not allow them to take over it again may Almighty God grant them strength to do their work diligently.

  3. Wow.. Thank God at last peace have been restored and I hope the security men are always on ground so that such thing shouldn’t repeat itself.

  4. Is nice to hear this but is there no any more school in the local government? Because I don’t know why you government decided to risk the students life. You suppose to take does students to another school instead of risking there life. But I pray to God for there guidance.

  5. Should we call this a resurrection, a step in the right direction or dangerous one?
    We keep hearing news of killings of the Boko Haram members yet they never seem to finish.
    Let them ensure adequate security is provided to the innocent children.

  6. The government has tried so much to do this. Kudos to WAEC
    I hope there is adequate security on ground to forestall any unforeseen threat to the students
