President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed the Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, to engage the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its decision to ban the 14 dismissed final year SHS students from writing their remaining West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The President believes that, though the acts of indiscipline by the students are “intolerable”, the “dismissal alone is enough punishment, and will serve as enough deterrent against future acts of indiscipline.

” A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin on Sunday, August 9, 2020 noted that President Akufo-Addo is of the conviction that “everyone deserves a second chance in life, and is, thus, hopeful that the students will be allowed by the GES to take their final examinations as scheduled.”

The President insist that, “indeed, all other punishment imposed by the relevant authorities should remain in place.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) last Friday dismissed and ban 14 students rioting at some schools at the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The students from Tweneboa Kodua SHS, Kade SHTS, Sekondi College, Battor SHS, and Juaben SHS destroyed school property and attacked invigilators and journalists.
