The National Examinations Council (NECO) has denied rescheduling any of its ongoing Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) for school-based candidates slated for Saturday, July 9.

It stated that rather, it has given a whole examination free week, beginning from Friday, July 8 to Wednesday, July 13, 2022, to enable the Muslim faithful to have enough time to celebrate the festival.

This, according to ’s Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Mr Azeez Sani in a statement in Minna, is contrary to insinuations in some quarters that the council has scheduled examination for 9th July, 2022, which is Sallah Day (Eid-Adha).
