Students who are expecting to write the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination ( WASSCE) may be disappointed due to the government’s huge indebtedness to the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
The Minority, through its Ranking Member on the Education Committee, Dr Clement Apaak, has hinted that WAEC’s operations have been greatly affected due to the indebtedness.
The Minority is, therefore, calling on the government to as soon as possible clear the GHS21 million it owes WAEC.
Meanwhile, Dr Apaak, who is the Builsa South Member of Parliament (MP) has revealed WAEC will need GHS 96 million to be able to organise the 2022 examinations.
He has, therefore, urged the government to release money to that effect.
Government has faced a lot of issues in recent times with Teachers going on strike for their cost of living allowance affecting contact hours Confirmed We are on Strike starting from today- Teachers on Strike, End of Strike today 14th July, 2022.
