The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), has beckoned on the Federal Government to review its decision on the suspension of 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).
In a statement released on Monday by its representative, Yomi Odubela, it stated that there is need to prevent the situation where Nigerian students will be coerced to find an alternative way of writing the examinations by approaching other countries like Ghana, and other neighboring West African countries. It noted that this will not be good for the country’s reputation.
Odubela further explained that NAPPS is fully ready to ensure safe partial reopening of schools for Junior Secondary Schools and Senior Secondary Schools, Class Three students respectively.
According to Odubela, NAPSS would ensure that each member school of the association would comply and adhere strictly to the safety recommendations and protocols spelt out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), to curtail further spread of COVID-19.
