Mathematics Is Not Compulsory For All Course Of Study-WAEC Hoss

Head of the Nigeria National Office of West African Examinations Council,WAEC, Mr. Charles Eguridu has openly frowned at the idea of making mathematics compulsory for all students seeking admission into Higher institutions of learning when their course of study or area of discipline has nothing to do with mathematics.

According to him, this
is unfair. He made this statement during an interview following the release of WASSCE 2014.

Eguridu explained that as a student of Theatre Arts, you have no business learning quadratic equation.

“Somebody who wants to read Yoruba in the university, and the institution is demanding for Mathematics is an issue because he does not need Mathematics to perform well in Yoruba. I do not think Mathematical ability is necessary for success in every endeavour of live.” He asserted.

"Those who play football and can score goals, or those who can sing very well, I am yet to see how passing Mathematics made them successful. For English Language, I agree because it is the means of communication, but for Maths, it should not compulsory for some studies," he added.
