Legit.ng had also reported that WAEC on Sunday, July 5, asked Nigerians to disregard a timetable currently in circulation around the country.
It was reported that the supposed timetable was said to have been released hours after the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced the resumption of schools to some sets of students.
The schools had remained shut for months now over the spreading coronavirus pandemic in Lagos and some parts of Nigeria. In reaction to an inquiry by a Nigerian on Twitter, Jamiu Kazeem Babatunde, WAEC said the timetable did not emanate from it.
Legit.ng had also reported that the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Lagos state chapter, said it is opposed to the reopening of schools due to the rising cases of COVID-19.
The chairman of the NUT in Lagos state, Adesina Adedoyin, made the disclosure when reacting to the decision of the south-west governors to commence WASSCE in August.
