Teachers council urges students to use holiday to study for WASC, NECO


The Registrar/Chief Executive, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Professor Segun Ajiboye, has advised students preparing for WAEC and NECO examinations to use the opportunity of COVID-19 lockdown to study well.
Ajiboye, in a release made available to newsmen in Ibadan Thursday, stated that the students must note the present challenge to education.


He said they must be ready for post-pandemic season, when they may have a limited period for revision before taking their major examinations.
According to him, no fewer than 62 million teachers are incapacitated by COVID-19, while about 1.7 billion children globally cannot attend school because of the pandemic.


He stated that parents must support and monitor their children to study on their own in the absence of their teachers.
Ajiboye also stated that Nigeria must leverage on technology to redesign her educational system adding that the pandemic caught the sector unawares.
“We cannot be the same again after COVID-19 had gone. We need technology. We need to invest in it. The world is moving and will not wait for us. 


“We must invest in technology to solve most of our problems,” he said.
