One issue that attracted the attention of many in the course of the week is that of the purchase of past questions by the government for WASSCE candidates. This is done to help the candidates get prepared for the external exams. The Education Minister, Hon. Dr. Yaw Osei-Adutwum on the floor of Parliament gave the cost of the past questions that was purchased by government for last year's candidates. The Minister also stated the unit cost price of the past questions that would be purchased this year (GH¢ 78 - 32% increase from last year's price which was GH¢ 59). The total cost of the past questions for the two-year period is about GH¢ 68.5 million.
Reacting to the account given by the Minister of Education, Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A Plus took to his Facebook page to express his concerns about the cost involved in purchasing these past questions for the students by the government.
In the post A Plus made it clear that the amount that spent in the purchase of the past questions (GH¢ 68.5 million) for WASSCE candidates could construct schools to eliminate about 170 'schools under trees'. "There is a special place in hell for anyone who defends this useless government", he added.
