‘Dissolve WAEC’ – Ghana National Council Of Private Schools Calls On Government

The Ghana National Council of private schools has edged the government to abandon the West African Examination Council.

According to them, the Examination body has overstayed its establishing purpose in the country. The Council argued that WAEC, in its current structure, has no positive impact or contribution toward educational development in Ghana. This agitation from the Private schools comes on the back of a recent report published by the Examination body.

According to WAEC, these private schools have little to no regard for Examination rules and conduct. The report, which is based on the ongoing 2022 West African Senior Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE), slurred and rebuked these private schools for their actions. At a press conference organised by WAEC, the Examination body revealed that more than 20 people had been arrested for impersonating candidates in the ongoing WASSCE at various private schools across the country.

Reacting to the findings, The National Executive Director for GNACOPS, Obengfo Kwesi Enoch Nana Gyetuah, rejected the claims by WAEC. He described the report as cacophony, which should not be accepted since it lacks legal findings or evidence.  

“Every government or every minister who is really ahead of time will collapse WAEC; because it is rather rendering our resources and retiring our youth. Somebody goes to school for 9 years, 12 years, sits in WAEC exams let’s say WASSCE or BECE and then they will come and tell you that you have failed in Mathematics, you have failed English and because of that your line is truncated you can’t develop anymore,” he said.
