MURIC reacts to new waec timetable
The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC reacts to new waec timetable saying that the new timetable from the examination body isn’t fair
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has stated that the timetable of the 2020 West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) is anti-Muslim
They then went on to disagree that exams will not be holding during Friday prayers over the course of the 2020 waec examination
The 2020 WAEC examinations is set to commence on the 17th of August, 2020 following the approval from the FG
Recall that the academic calendar was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic back in march and April leading to postponing of the 2020 waec examinations
Reacting to the examination body’s new waec timetable, the MURIC Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola accused WAEC of creating a wedge between young Muslims and the mosque
She also accused the body of putting out a timetable which is exclusive, sectional, parochial, insensitive, provocative and designed to cause pain to Muslim candidates.
Professor Ishaq Akintola who also said that Nigerian Muslims will liberate themselves from slavery, serfdom and religious apartheid if government is lackadaisical
She then further directed WAEC to give Muslim candidates three hours every Friday
The statement read;
There are at least three clashes between examination periods and Muslim prayers on Fridays: Management-in-Living (2 pm, Friday 14th August, 2020); Literature-in-English (2 pm, Friday 21st August); Health Science (1.30 pm, Friday, 4th September).
“It is the handiwork of sadists and anarchists. It smirks of an anti-Muslim machinery oiled by the passion for hate and injustice. This is in spite of efforts made by us to guard against this kind of clash.
“Our message to WAEC is very clear and simple: Adjust your timetable and stop provoking Muslims forthwith.”
