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).
Dr Clement Apaak-Member of Parliament (MP)Builsa South.
The Member of Parliament stated that government owes WAEC a huge sum of 22million Ghana Cedis, therefore the minority is calling on the government to clear the debt as soon as possible.
Meanwhile Dr Apaak who is the Builsa South Member of Parliament has disclosed that WAEC will need Gh96million to be able to organise the 2022 examinations.
He has therefore urged the government to release money to the effect.
“As we speak WAEC need a minimum of GH96 million to prepare for the 2022 WASSCE and BECE.
Those monies have not been released.So there is a possibility that WAEC’s calendar could be disrupted.So we want to use this opportunity to call on the government to do the needful.Pay WAEC the Gh22 million arrears for WASSCE and BECE of 2021 and make the Gh96 million available to WAEC to prepare adequately so that our young men and women who are looking forward to writing their terminal exams at the JHS level and SHS level would not be disappointed”.
