Muslim Group Threatens To Disrupt WAEC Examinations “Jummat”

The President of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Ishaq Akintola, has warned the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to arrange its examination timetable to accommodate Jummat or risk disruption of the examinations by Muslims.

Mr. Akintola said the way the timetable was scheduled this year was an injustice against Muslims who would be writing the exams and also might want to observe the Jummat service.

The group seemed to be complaining about the schedule for 2018 May/June Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE), which indicate candidates will write Chemistry paper from 2 pm to 5 pm on Friday, April 20.

According to the details published by Premium Times, the president said: “When there is no justice, there can never be peace and everyone is clamoring for peace. Until something starts happening, until the Muslims start disrupting WAEC examination, until Muslims start tearing WAEC examination materials, that is when the government will start paying attention.

“WAEC is playing games and they want the Muslims to make noise every year, the council is deliberately provoking Muslims and it has continued to show itself as a consistent anti-Muslim institution,” he said.

“Section 38 subsection 1 and 2 of the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s constitution stipulates that there must be freedom of worship and WAEC fixing an examination for 2 pm simply means that WAEC does not want Muslims to worship, therefore WAEC is an oppressor and we are ready for them,” he said.

“The Muslims in every vicinity of the exam can mobilize on the day of the examination and go to the schools which the exams will be written, we are sending this warning to WAEC not to dare it.”
