The 2015 National Common Entrance Examinations into secondary schools scheduled for March 21 has been postponed till April 25, 2015.

Mr Abdul Mustapha, the Abuja Liaison Officer of the National Examination Council (NECO) disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja.

Mustapha said that postponement was necessitated by the anxieties of parents ahead of the general elections rescheduled to hold on March 28 and April 11.

According to him, registration for the examination will continue until April 18.

”The idea of postponement was brought by the ministry and after consultations with the council, we decided to shift it.

”There are some concerns as to whether parents will leave their children in schools with the uncertainties ahead of the elections.”

Mustapha said it would be better to write the exam in a relaxed atmosphere after the elections.

A parent, Mrs Bridget Emoha, told NAN the postponement was a welcome development as parents would like to have their wards at home during the election period.

“This is a good move from NECO; the extension of registration will enable candidates who had not registered to do so before the new date,” Emoha said.

Another parent, Mr Benjamin Ikpegbu, said the candidates for common entrance were still very young children who should not write examination in a tensed atmosphere.

According to him, the general situation of things in the country will be calmer and more conducive for examinations after the elections. (NAN)
