National Examinations Council (NECO) has confirmed that its ongoing Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) for school based candidates won’t hold on Saturday, July 9 being the Sallah Day (Eid- Adha).

 NECO spokesman, Sani Azeez, in a statement, dispelled rumours that there was NECO examination that was fixed that day, urging Nigerians to disregard the statement.

He said: “NECO is conscious of the importance of religious festivals, hence it has always made adequate provision for such in fixing examination dates.                    The Council has given a examination free week, beginning from Friday, July 8 to Wednesday, July 13 in the ongoing Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE)for school based candidates to enable Muslim faithful have enough time to celebrate the festival.”
