He said the exams will be held from August 4 to September 2020.
He said, “The exams will run from August 4 to September 5. So parents should keep that in mind.
“We did our best and discussed it with our representatives from WAEC on a daily basis, assuring the dates that the exam will be held from August 4 to September 5,” he said.
“From tomorrow, we will engage stakeholders in the business, and they will all attend tomorrow’s meeting.
