By Temi Ohakwe, Abuja

The National Examinations Council (NECO) says it has been constrained to reschedule the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19th of October 2020 due to what it described as an unforeseen incident.

The Council says it was forced to reschedule the exam due to events unfolded by the ENDSARS protest that blocked the free movement of transport at the City entrance gate of Benin.

NECO states in a statement signed by Azeez Sani , Head Information and Public Relations of the organisation that delivery truck had left its take off point well in advance on Friday 16 October 2020, earlier to deliver examination materials to some states and has been held up in the blockage since then. 

“The Council wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that the affected examination materials have been retrieved and are intact”

​”While regretting any inconveniences this rescheduling may cause our esteemed stakeholders, the Council has however taken this decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examinations procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination”, NECO added.

The exam will now hold 16th Monday November, 2020.
