The Federal Ministry of Education had through a statement, yesterday, announced that exit level students would resume to prepare for their examinations from August 4.
Reacting to this development, Atiku, in a tweet via his Twitter handle, @atiku, commended the Federal Ministry of Education for listening to Nigerians and directing for schools reopening.
The tweets reads: “The announcement by the FMoE that the WAEC exam will hold in August is commendable. Learning must go on, especially for exit stage students. I do hope, however, that students writing the exams are well prepared through home study during the lockdown. I wish them the very best.
“I commend the FMoE for acceding to the patriotic counsel that myself and other well-meaning Nigerians and organisations gave with regards to not cancelling the WASSCE exams.”
