The Minority in Parliament has called for the cancellation of all leaked papers in the ongoing 2020 WASSCE.
According to the Minority, the leaked papers brings to question the integrity of the exams and the reputation of WAEC.
Deputy Ranking Member on Parliament’s Education Committee, Dr Clement Apaak said there is the need for the suck leakages to be investigated.
“We have become aware of what has become a pattern trend of leakages to do with some papers that have been written and others being written today. As we speak we find that development worrisome and unfortunate and we believe that it raises a lot of questions and calls to issue the integrity of the exam and the reputation of WAEC.”
“We are calling for immediate cancellation of all the leaked papers and we asking for WAEC to ensure that the remaining papers do not leak and WAEC ought to institute an immediate investigation to identify the sources of the leakages.”
The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has also called for an investigation into some leaked questions in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
NAGRAT said this must be swift and persons found culpable must face the full rigour of the law.
Several papers in the ongoing WASSCE including Economics, English have been leaked on social media with answers.
This leakage follows agitations by students who wanted to have questions to aid them in the examinations.
Angel Carbonu, who is the National president of NAGRAT, says an investigation and prosecution will bring an end to leaks during examinations.
“We think that an investigation should be instituted. An open investigation should be instituted and persons found culpable be dealt with. I think there should be an independent investigation body set up by the government.”
“This investigation should go beyond the West African Examination Council because the council has its integrity to protect. The Ghana Education Service will have its integrity to protect so they cannot set up any committee,” he added.
Mr. Carbonu further stressed that the integrity of the WASSCE certificate was at stake.
“We are very disappointed with what is happening. In fact, the whole of yesterday, myself and my officers were discussing the integrity of this year’s exams. There is a particular West African country that we all thought that when to show you their certificate, we need to further interrogate the sanctity of that certificate and if we are not careful, we will also be gradually gravitating towards that situation,” he said on Citi FM.
WAEC has however said it is committed to maintaining the integrity of the examination, adding that an investigative team has been formed but said they can’t be blamed for the leaks
