NECO Suspends SSSC Exams As Strike Paralyses School Activities


The on-going Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) conducted   by the National Examinations Council (NECO) was on Wednesday suspended   indefinitely following the three-day warning strike by the Nigeria Union of   Teachers (NUT).

The Executive Secretary of the examination body, Promise   Okpala, said, in Abuja, that the examinations, which started with practical   subjects on June 9, had been postponed indefinitely.

Public school   teachers nationwide made good their threat to stay away from work on Wednesday   to protest the non-implementation of the teachers’ salary scale (TSS).

In   obedience to the strike, all public primary and secondary schools across the   nation were shut, while the teachers stayed at home.
