The Association of Private Schools across the country has said its member schools are ready to participate in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) being conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) despite the stance of the federal government that no Nigerian school would participate in the exams.

They said they are prepared to participate in the WASSCE despite opposition by the federal government.

The minister of education; Adamu Adamu, had announced that Nigerian schools would not participate in the (WASSCE) scheduled to hold from August 5 to September 5, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But private schools across the country have differed with the ministry of education over the issue.

The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has appealed to the federal government to reconsider its position on WASSCE.

NAPPS president, Yomi Otubela, said the association on Tuesday, July 14, would make a formal appeal to the government to change its stance on the issue.

He said private schools have adhered to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) advise by putting COVID-19 safety measures in place to protect students who intend to sit for the exams.
