52 students protest inability to write exams in Delta

Trouble started last Friday when the students who were supposed to have started their examination around 10:00am, disclosed there was no preparation for them and supervisors to conduct the examination were not on hand.

Examination

The students were unable to write the exam due to the fact that their school has been allegedly blacklisted from participating in the on-going examination by NECO authority over its alleged involvement in examination malpractice.

A female teacher of the school has, however, denied this accusation, saying that NECO Officials bungled the schools channels during enrolment of the candidates for the Examination.

Trouble started last Friday, June 10, when the students who were supposed to have started their examination around 10:00am, disclosed there was no preparation for them and supervisors to conduct the examination were not on hand.

It was gathered that the disappointment angered the candidates who demanded to see the principal and the staff who enrolled them for the examinations and explain why the examination could not start.

The protesters reportedly took their protest to Isiokolo Divisional Police station of the area where they were urged to keep the peace to enable the school officials handle the matter. Narrating their plight to our correspondent, leader of  the aggrieved candidates, Ukoh said they did their enrolment in the school sometime in March, 2016, adding that when they reported in the school for the exams, they were told that the exercise could not.

But the school principal who did not want her name in the print, said the police arrested the staff who enrolled the candidates, even as the police image maker in the state, Mrs. Celestina Kalu, confirmed that a staff was helping the police for investigation.
