The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has appealed the National Examinations Council (NECO) to shift its examination date of July 2022 due to its clash with the first day of eid-el-Adha (Sallah).

MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made the appeal on Sunday in a statement.

“We are fully aware that the clash was not deliberate as NECO had actually demonstrated goodwill by setting aside a whole week for sallah celebrations (Monday, 11th July to Friday 15th July) and this reflected in its timetable.

“We therefore appeal to the NECO authorities to kindly shift the examination of that day alone (Saturday 9th July, 2022) to another date in order to enable its teeming Muslim candidates sit for their examinations.

“The paper which was originally fixed for Salah day may be taken on Thursday 14th July, 2022 which is one of the days set aside by NECO for the salah holiday.”
