Member of Parliament for North Tong Constituency Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa has called for an independent investigation into an alleged leaked WASSCE paper specifically, Integrated Science paper scheduled to be written on Monday.
In a post on the MP’s Facebook page, sighted by talksafrica.com, he expressed worry and said, many are genuinely and legitimately concerned about the widespread reports of a leaked Integrated Science paper which is casting dark clouds over the credibility of the 2020 WASSCE.
According to Ablakwa, surprisingly, the GES statement he read makes the claim that the subject being reported to have leaked is General Paper when everyone knows the matter in issue relates to Integrated Science which is scheduled to be written on Monday adding that, even more, worrying is the attempt by the GES statement to create an impression that annual reports of examination leakage are a normal development.
The legislator opined that there can be nothing normal or acceptable about examination papers leaking.
He further stressed that the GES statement does not, therefore, address the fundamental issue, neither does it engender the much-needed confidence or reassurance.
“It is imperative that the Government commissions an independent investigation into these reports and take more proactive steps to safeguard the image of Ghana’s education and the sanctity of certificates issued.” The post reads.
