NECO Examination holds, as IPOB insists on sit at home order.


NECO Examination holds, as IPOB insists on sit at home order.

Today, according to the timetable of the National Examination Council (NECO), the subject to be written is Mathematics. This necessitated the suspension of the sit-at-home order by Kanunta, Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother. “IPOB, having realized the academic deprivation the already marginalized Biafra students who entered for this year’s NECO would suffer, decided to suspend the sit-at-home order to a later date, to allow the students take their examinations. Allowing the sit-at-home to go ahead as earlier announced, in the face of the NECO Exam, would amount to assisting enemies of Biafra to inflict more injuries on her children” Kanunta said.


In a swift reaction, the spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful, insisted that the sit-at-home order still stands, maintaining that Kanunta had no right to suspend the order.

In all of these, the fate of Southeast students who are supposed to partake in the National Examination remain hanging. It has been gathered that the NECO Examination will proceed throughout the Federation. A school Proprietor based in Enugu who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity said he called an Enugu NECO official and they confirmed that the examination will still hold throughout the Federation. When he asked the official what would become of the students in the Southeast, the official reported that no order to suspend the exam was given, as the other parts of the country see it as an opportunity to be ahead of the Southeast. “Some of our staff and invigilators can’t find public transport to go to the office, pick and distribute examination questions for the different schools that should participate in the exam. I have seen some students trekking to school this morning too” she said.

When asked if the NECO Examination will be suspended seeing the effect of the sit-at-home order, through a text message by our correspondent, the Enugu State Honorable Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uche Eze responded “NECO is a national examination and not within the authority of the State to suspend. However report shows IPOB suspended the sit at home order”.


It remains uncertain what would happen as the day continues to unfold, seeing the importance of Mathematics to having a good SSCE result.
