Despite threats from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the General Mathematics exam for the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination, organized by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), was successfully held across Enugu State on May 30.

Visits to numerous examination centers revealed a peaceful examination process. Many students expressed their concerns about potential disruptions but were relieved that the exams proceeded without incident. They implored all parties to avoid actions that could jeopardize their future.

The Enugu State Government had earlier condemned IPOB’s call for a postponement of the exams, urging students to disregard the sit-at-home order for “Biafra Heroes Day.” The Commissioner for Information and Communication emphasized the severe consequences of missing such critical exams and assured the public of robust security arrangements.

At Ideal Comprehensive College, Ugbo Odogwu, the principal, Chidera Nnaji, and student Jennifer Eze confirmed the effectiveness of the security measures. Eze called for respect for students’ right to a bright future, highlighting the importance of peace and unity.

Similarly, Girls Secondary School, Trans Ekulu, reported a smooth examination process. Principal Ada Onunze noted that all 203 registered students attended, bolstered by local government security operatives.

Christabel Chimzurum, a student at the school, emphasized the importance of taking control of their educational opportunities, dismissing the sit-at-home order as counterproductive.

Akpugo High School in Nkanu West LGA and Government Technical College, Enugu, also reported uninterrupted examinations. Principals and supervisors at these institutions credited the peaceful environment to diligent security measures, including vigilant village security personnel.

The concerted efforts of the Enugu State Government and local communities ensured that students could focus on their exams, highlighting the importance of safeguarding education against external threats.
