”It will be No NIN, no entry,” he stated.

According to Areghan, this means that all prospective candidates must register with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and get their NIN.

He noted that the development was in line with the Federal Government’s policy as directed by the Federal Ministry of Education.

”In accordance with the final international timetable, our WASSCE 2021, will take place throughout the sub-region from Monday, August 16.

”However, the examination will end in Nigeria on Sept. 30, spanning a period of seven weeks,” he said.
