NATIONAL Examinations Council (NECO) had said that it had not postponed the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) due to COVID-19.

  Head of Information and Public Relations, Azeez Sani, said this in a statement in Abuja, yesterday.

  According to him, NECO had noticed the news trending on social media purporting the shift in the 2020 BECE and SSCE but is refuting it.

  “NECO wishes to state categorically that apart from the 2020 National Common Entrance (NCEE) that was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the council has not reviewed any of its remaining examination, neither is the council contemplating such for now. The general public is urged to disregard such fake news, as the council is monitoring the prevailing situation in the country and will make an official pronouncement on the examinations if the need arises,” Sani said.

  It will be recalled that NECO announced the postponement of the 2020 National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE) into Federal Unity Colleges which was earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, 28 March.
