NECO – National Examinations Council has been asked to schedule on another date the examinations that coincides with the first day of Salah [ 9th July 2022 ].
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made the appeal in a statement on . According to Prof. Ishaq the Islamic group recognised that the coincidence of the examination date and Salah was not anybody’s fault as it wasn’t scheduled that way on purpose.
According to the statement, the MURIC appeal to the NECO authorities to kindly reschedule the examination of only on Saturday 9th July, 2022 to another date was made in order for Muslim candidates not to miss their examinations due to the salah celebrations.
“The examination paper which was originally fixed for Salah day may likely be shifted to Thursday 14th July, 2022 which is one of the days previously set aside by NECO during drafting of the examination timetable for the Salah holiday.
MURIC wishes NECO authorities and staff as well as all Nigerians a happy Salah.”
