The Month Our Government Worked-Against All Odds

It was my friend Professor George Odabi, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Deo Gratis International Group of Schools in Abuja, who first informed me about the planned reopening of Secondary Schools in Nigeria- to pave way for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination(WASSCE) which was originally scheduled to hold in June of 2020- but was put on hold indefinitely due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19)

Following the Federal Ministry of Education”s directives, most secondary schools opened on the 4th day of August 2020. The long-awaited WASSCE which is administered by the West African Examination Council(WAEC) commenced in earnest on August 17, 2020, and is billed to end by September 12, 2020.

As a proud parent of two candidates who are partaking in this academic passage of life, I felt compelled to thank the Presidency, the Federal Ministry of Education and all stakeholders who spearheaded the initiative to put smiles on the faces of our children, by giving them the opportunity to fulfill their dream.

Our consistent criticism of the maladministration in our country should not deny our leaders praises when they implement proper strategic policies-such as this. We will prefer to give them more accolades rather than condemnations, but then again, the people in power have to give us the reason to praise them- just like they have justifiably done with the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

Great job and my salute to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
