“Management’s attention has been drawn to a notice of the Commencement of Indefinite Strike by NLC and TUC, effective Monday, June 3, 2024,” the letter stated.

“Please be formally informed that the conduct of WASSCE SC 2024 goes on as scheduled.”

She noted that the examination body shares the burden of the unions.

She stated that in Nigeria and several other West African states, students shouldn’t be the ones who suffer from missing the ongoing exams.

“As much as we share the unions’ and the majority of Nigerians’ concerns, the Nigerian child should not be disadvantaged by missing the exam because the WASSCE SC is being held throughout the member countries of WAEC.

“For this reason, the exam will be administered by WAEC. School principals, supervisors, parents, and members of the public are kindly asked to take note and ensure that their applicants have the necessary procedures in place to take the exam.

It ended, “Kindly be guided accordingly.”
