The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has been advised to do all in its power to ensure a leakage-free Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) this year and beyond.
Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, The Very Reverend Solomon Kwasi Nyantakyi –Adomako, Superintendent Minister of the Bethel Methodist church at Sefwi Wiawso, lamented that cancellation of examination papers due to leakages and other malpractices, destroyed the zeal in students and impacted negatively on their future academic and other social pursuits.
He urged all stakeholders to play their respective roles effectively to ensure an accident-free examination to give a better direction to the future of the students.
Rev. Nyantakyi- Adomako also urged the candidates to be bold, courageous and fight a good fight, as fear bred failure” Uphold fair play and avoid cheating in examination because it is as sinful as any other act of sin.
“Avoid lawlessness and excessive celebration after the BECE, because it was just the beginning of real life experience. Start and end with God, unlike Biblical Solomon, who started with God, but ended with gods,” he admonished all the candidates across the country.
