Commenting on insecurity in some parts of the country, the Council boss stated that adequate arrangements was made with security agencies to monitor movements of materials and staff.
“We also have security agents to guide our custodian point. As far as movements are concerned, we have not encountered any security issue and we have not received any report from any parts of the country even in regions where we have sit-at-home, we have been able to conduct exams without any issues.
“Though, some candidates missed some papers last year as a result of the ‘sit-at-home’ but those papers have been re-administered. Even now, we are not having much problems because we have our people on ground that understand the nature of the security challenge and have devised means of overcoming the challenges in the midst of it all. So, we are on top of the satiation,” Wushishi said.
The outlawed Indigenous of People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared a weekly sit-at-home in the South East to protest the detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is standing trail for terrorism.
