WAEC appeals for strike exemption


The Head of the Nigerian national Office West African Examinations Council, Dr Amos Dangut has appealed for an exemption from the strike embarked upon by the organised labour to enable the council to conduct the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination without disruptions.

The ongoing WASSCE commenced on April 30 and will end on June 24, 2024.

The organised labour had declared a nationwide strike, which began on Monday, June 3, 2024, over the Federal Government’s refusal to raise the proposed minimum wage from N60,000.

In an interview with The PUNCH, Dangut explained that the Council shared the pains of Nigerian workers but emphasised that the candidates would be at a global disadvantage if denied the opportunity to write and complete the ongoing WASSCE.
