The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has stated that the timetable of the 2020 West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE), is anti-Muslim, as they rejected exams holding during Friday prayers.

The 2020 WAEC is set to commence on the 17th of August, 2020, after the academic calendar was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reacting to the exam body’s timetable MURIC Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola accused WAEC of creating a wedge between young Muslims and the mosque and putting out a timetable which is exclusive, sectional, parochial, insensitive, provocative and designed to cause pain to Muslim candidates.

Akintola who averred that Nigerian Muslims will liberate themselves from slavery, serfdom and religious apartheid if government is lackadaisical, 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.”
