President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo has wished final year students partaking in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) well.
The president who resumed work today, sent his best wishes to the students.
The message said “I wish all the students the best of luck and Godspeed in their examination and I send best wishes to all final year senior high school students who will from today, Monday, July 20, take the West African Senior School Certificate Examination”.
President Akuffo Addo said education was the key to the future of the country, stressing the need to do everything possible to guarantee the prospects of the youth.
He added that the potential of the youth must be protected “to help preserve our collective future”.
He therefore urged teaching and Non-teaching staff, invigilators and students to abide by the enhanced hygiene standards, wear nose masks, and COVID-19 observe protocols.
That, he said, are the weapons to help defeat COVID-19.
About 375,737 candidates are writing WASSCE today, out of which 313,838 are from public senior high schools and 20,000 candidates from the Ghana Education Service, Technical and Vocational Education Division, who are under the Free SHS policy.
