The plan of the federal of Nigeria to lift the ban on Twitter may be excellent news to students and candidates of 2021 examinations (UTME, WAEC, NECO and NABTEB) in Nigeria. Before the ban, Twitter is that the main source of live updates from the examination bodies. Since the ban on the microblogging site, candidates need to depend upon third parties for updates because the examination bodies don’t operate social media accounts apart from Twitter.
Prior to the ban, the Twitter handle of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) was actively responding to enquiries on registration, collection of certificates, collection of results and varied other issues. As soon because the ban was effected, WAEC’s Twitter handle became inactive. This made it mandatory for people to visit WAEC offices for necessary enquiry. Checks show that the Twitter handle of WAEC in Nigeria (@waecnigeria) was last active on June 1, 2021. If the ban is eventually lifted, updates about WAEC examinations are going to be available once more. See Finish
