It is no longer news that the 2020 West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been suspended till further notice in Nigeria.
Given the continuous spread of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, the Federal government through the ministry of education is of the view that failure to suspend the 2020 West African Examination Council (WAEC) will be disadvantageous to the health of the candidates.
However, some Nigerians do not welcome this idea. And one of such persons is the former Vice president and former presidential candidate Alahji Atiku Abubakar.
The former presidential candidate is of the view that rather than suspending the 2020 West African Examination Council (WAEC) in Nigeria, there are other steps in which the Federal government ought to have taken.
He contends that the absolute suspension of the 2020 WAEC examination in the country may turn out to be counterproductive.
According to him, some candidates will surely find their way out of the country in a view to writing the 2020 WAEC examination.
And such candidates may contract the Covid-19 pandemic in some of these countries.
However, while some Nigerians agreed with the former presidential candidate, some totally disagreed with his argument.
