The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has postponed the English Language examination scheduled to hold on Saturday, September 22, till September 29, 2018.
The examination body revealed this on its Twitter handle, @waecnigeria.
A Twitter handle, @Dr_Pagan, had asked: “Sir, I’m curious about something. The English language that is supposed to be written on 22nd of this month, I heard you’ve postponed it to 29th. Is it true cause me I don’t want to miss the period. God bless Nigeria”.
WAEC then responded by tweeting: “English Language papers will be written on September 29, 2018. Please, go to our registration site (http://registration.waecdirect.org) and download the timetable.”

Although the examination body did not expressly state so, the postponement of the election may not be unconnected to the Osun State gubernatorial election scheduled to hold on September 22, during which movement within the state would be restricted.
