IPOB’s sit-at-home: COSEYL condemns order amid WAEC exams



IPOB sit-at-home: COSEYL condemns order amid WAEC exams

The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has denounced the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for their plans to enforce a sit-at-home order in the Southeast on Thursday, coinciding with the ongoing West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams.

COSEYL President General, Goodluck Ibem, called the move barbaric and highlighted its negative impact on over 300,000 students writing their mathematics exam.

IPOB announced the sit-at-home order on Tuesday, stating that May 30th is a crucial date to honour those who died during the Nigerian Civil War. Despite the ongoing WAEC exams, IPOB insisted on halting movement in the region.

COSEYL strongly condemned the directive, emphasizing that disrupting the exams would be grossly insensitive and an act of wickedness.

“This is an international examination that cuts across many countries,” Ibem stated.

“Stopping our students from participating is barbaric and pure wickedness, especially towards poor students who may have been assisted to register for the exams.”

The youth leaders stressed the importance of allowing students to take their exams without interruption, noting that any action causing suffering and pain to the region’s people is self-destructive.

“South East WAEC students should not be disturbed from writing their exams. This exam is their future,” Ibem emphasized.
