Speaking with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday, Sani said that the Council Registrar, Prof. Godswill Obioma, while announcing the 2020 results, said that 12 states were disrupted during the conduct of the examinations as a result of the effects of COVID-19 pandemic and the End SARS protests.
