Omokri Kicks Against FG’s Decision To Cancel WAEC

By Augustine Akhilomen

Reno Omokri, former Presidential media aide to Goodluck Jonathan, has kicked against the decision of the Federal Government to cancel the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Omokri, via his official twitter handle on Friday, described the cancellation of the exam by FG as unfair on the part of the Nigerian students.

Reno in his reaction said Nigeria’s education system does not have the capacity to handle an overwhelming number of students who would be ready to take the examination next year.

He said: ”1.5 million Nigerians write WASSCE every year. Nigeria does not have the capacity to hold WAEC exams for 3 million people next year. What this means is that, if this policy is not reversed, every Nigerian child will miss a year, not just the final year students.

“Edo has 2,210,534 voters, while Ondo has 1,822,346. A total of 4,032,880. WAEC has 1.5 million registered students in Nigeria. WAEC exams takes 5 hours. Voting takes all day. So, what is the rationale for suspending WASSCE, yet go on with Edo and Ondo elections?

“Ghana opened schools for final year students and confirmed that WAEC examinations will hold. Meanwhile, Nigeria suspended WAEC exams. That is because Ghana’s President, @NAkufoAddo is a graduate of @UniofOxford, and General @MBuhari has questionable WAEC status!”he tweeted
