Disregard What Apaak Said; Ntim Fordjour on Gov’t Indebtedness To WAEC

The Deputy Minister for Education, Rev Ntim Fordjour has urged Ghanaians to disregard the minority’s claim that the government of Ghana owes the West Africa Examination Council (WEAC) an amount of GHC21 million.

He indicated that the government has met every obligation with the examination council and tagged the allegation of the ranking Member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Clement Apaak, as a propaganda.

“Disregard what Apaak is saying. Government has always resourced WAEC. Government still hosts WAEC headquarters right here in the country and we have always been bringing along our compatriots in Nigeria, Gambia, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. So we will continue to ensure that whatever WAEC needs is given to them. Disregard any such propaganda”.

He also allayed fears that the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) scheduled for this August and October respectively will take place according to the schedule.

“Any examination that the Ministry of Education has scheduled to be conducted by WAEC will happen as scheduled. BECE, WASSCE will all happen as scheduled. Disregard rumours that we are going to have the schedules revised, changed or suspended…Every obligation has been met. If there is anything that has to be discussed further, definitely, that will be”, he said.

Apaak, alleged that the government owes WAEC some GHC21 million and needed GHS 96 million to organise the 2022 examinations.
