Sani said the examination earlier scheduled to commence on Feb. 1 and end on March 3 would now start on Feb. 8 and end on March 10.
”Following requests by candidates to be given more time to complete their registration process for the 2020 SSCE (External), the NECO has fixed new dates for the examination.
”The Council hereby informs those candidates who missed some papers during the 2020 SSCE (Internal) due to the ENDSARS protests in some states, to take note of these new dates and report for the examination accordingly at their various examination centers to be designated.
