A candidate of the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) who tested positive for COVID-19 in Gombe State, earned plaudits today after he was pictured taking his papers from an isolation centre.
In the shot taken, the male candidate was taking his mathematics exam while an invigilator stood behind him fully kitted in a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
