Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa has condemned the rampage by students of the Tweneboah Kodua Senior High School in the Ashanti Region.

“Students have no right to behave in such a manner – they must channel their grievances through the right sources,” he said.

Final year students of the school were outraged yesterday demanding the removal of the headmaster of the school, John Asante, who has been accused of being strict on them during the sitting of the Integrated Science paper.

In the video circulating on social media,students were seen cursing out their teachers and vowing to boycott the rest of the examinations.They were also seen destroying furniture and other items in the dining hall. More than 300,000 students are sitting for the exam in Ghana supervised by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

Already, some unscrupulous persons have been sharing question papers online in an attempt to defraud unsuspecting candidates.

In a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, the Council said that some alleged leaked papers making round on social media are all fake.

“The attention of WAEC has been drawn to the circulation of several fake versions of the Integrated Science 1 & 2 papers to be administered on 3 August 2020 on social media platforms”, the statement said.

The Council said it “wishes to allay the fears of all stakeholders, especially the candidates about the alleged leakage of the papers”.
