ABC News Ghana is an investigative media house that focuses on politics, sports and the economy. Our work is thoroughly researched, balanced and fair. Our vision is to become the most preferred indigenous news brand for men in West Africa.

A Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Dr Kwabena Tandoh says the country will still proceed with the West African Senior High School Certificate Examination despite Nigeria pulling out.

The Federal Government of Nigeria rescinded its decision to open schools and called off the exam in that country due to health and safety concerns of its students.

Even though Ghana is yet to be officially notified of the move, it says together with the rest of the membership of the West African Examination Council, it is still committed to writing the exam in August/September as earlier agreed.

“We have not received any communication officially to the contrary and usually, we receive our communication from WAEC through official channels at the Ghana National Office and so if there is something in the news media we would at least wait for official communication. But as far as we are aware all member countries have agreed,” Dr Tandoh said.

He added that Ghana will wait for the official confirmation from WAEC and added that it won’t change the country’s stance.

The timetable for the upcoming WASSCE, which has been submitted to the Ministry of Education, is expected to begin on Monday, July 20, 2020.
