The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has described the 2020 West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) timetable as anti-Muslim.
Reacting to the West African Examination Council (WAEC) timetable, which revealed that examination will commence on August 17, 2020, MURIC stated that it clashed with Muslims’ Friday prayers.
Professor Ishaq Akintola, MURIC Director, accused WAEC of creating a timetable, which it said is “exclusive”, “sectional”, “parochial”, “insensitive”, “provocative” and designed to cause pain to Muslim candidates.

Akintola said Nigerian Muslims will liberate themselves from slavery and religious apartheid, if government is lackadaisical.
He directed WAEC to give Muslim candidates three hours every Friday.

“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,” the statement read.
