Road deserted in the South-East Monday

OWERRI- legal luminary, Prince Christopher Muo, Tuesday, said the disruption of the National Examination Council, NECO Mathematics Examination in the southeast zone may keep students at their homes for the next four years.

Muo said this to newsmen in Owerri, while reacting to the inability of students to write their NECO Mathematics Examination as a result of the sit-at-home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in the Zone Monday.

He added the failure of the students to write their examinations could be an impediment to the educational development of the children in the region.

The lawyer called on Igbo leaders to quickly intervene and NECO’s management to reschedule the Mathematics examination for all the students in the South East.

According to Muo, “ have been the chairman of a missionary school management for over five years and am serving in the said capacity. As chairman of a school management committee, I have seen firsthand what the disruption of school calendar and school attendance does to children. It is often a life time disruption of the child’s development path.”

“To miss on mathematics examination in Nigeria may keep some of those children at home for the next four years. They will form the recruiting mass for the emerging militia of angry jobless youths attacking the Nigerian society.

“On this note, urge all of us to lend a voice and ask NECO to reschedule Mathematics examination for all the candidates in South East states of Nigeria,” he said. (Vanguard)
