President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed the Ghana Education Service to reconsider sanctions against the 14 students identified to have engaged in acts of violence during the WASSCE examination.

The Ghana Education Service in an earlier statement directed the immediate dismissal of fourteen WASSCE candidates engaged in acts of vandalism and barred them from continuing with the examination.

In reaction the president has asked to Minister of Education to engage with GES in order to reverse the decision that bans them from continuing with their final examination.

“The President of the Republic has directed the Minister for Education to engage the Ghana Education Service to reconsider its decision to ban some 14 dismissed final year students from taking the ongoing WASSCE”, a statement issued from the Presidency noted.

The president firmly holds that “dismissal alone is enough punishnment and will serve as enough deterrent against future acts of indiscipline”.

The statement emphasized that all other sanctions can be imposed except banning them from writing the exams.

“The president believes that everyone deserves a second chance in life and is thus hopeful that the students will be allowed by the GES to take their final examination as scheduled”, the statement added.
