The National Examination Council, NECO, has rescheduled one of the practical examinations which was supposed to hold in October till next month.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday, October 18, by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division for the Nigerian exam body, Mr. Azeez Sani.

He announced that the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals examination which was supposed to be taken on Monday, October 19 will now be postponed till November 16, 2020.

Sani revealed that the postponement is as a result of the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country, particularly the blockage of movement of transport at the entrance gate into Benin City, the Edo state capital.

He noted further that the truck conveying NECO examination materials had left its take-off point two days earlier to deliver to some states but has been held up in the ‘blockage.


  1. It is nice they postpone it because it is someone who is alife will go to school and by the way when they finish their schooling where will they work
    Let’s sanitize our country first

  2. Safety comes first in anything, if allow the students to sit for exam may cause loss of life on their to examination hall, this step is good one to take.

  3. Prevention is better than cure. Government should take drastic steps in addressing the issue of protest before leading to something else.

  4. Is proper, because it is very dangerous to hold the examination during this ongoing Nationwide protest. Kudos👍
