Sit-at-home order didn’t disrupt WAEC exams in Anambra, says ANCOOPA
President of All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), Anambra State chapter, Mr. Jovita Arazu, said that the West African Examination exercise is ongoing in Anambra according to the stipulated timetable.
Arazu, also the Principal of Igwebuike Grammar School, Awka, said that the sit-at-home directive, by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), did not disrupt the May/June external examination of secondary schools in the state.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka, yesterday, that he is yet to receive any report from any principal of their inability to conduct the said examination in the state due to disruption by the IPOB.
“We are in schools now supervising the examination of our students across public schools in the state and it is going on well; there are no threats or disruption of the exercise so far by either IPOB or any other group.
“We started the examination paper, which is Marketing, at about 10:00am and finished at about 1:05 pm; there are no reports of attack anywhere yet in the state.”
Arazu said that the next paper is Data Processing and it would hold as planned across the schools in the state by God’s grace.
Mrs Chinenye Ekeh, Principal, Ogidi Girls Secondary School, Ogidi, Idemili North Local Government Area of the State, confirmed the claims of Arazu and said that the school took their Catering and Craft Practices examination paper without challenges.
