Father of the 18-year-old student, Mr. Joseph Kobina has publicly apologised to President Akufo-Addo on his son’s behalf.

In an interview with Accra-based Peace FM, Mr. Kobina said: ”I apologise for what my son did; I plead with Ghanaians to help me apologize to the President...

According to the father, he was disheartened when he saw the video.

“ I couldn't believe it. I learnt the phone belonged to his friend in school because he doesn't take a phone to school. I am really sorry for his behaviour,” he added.

Mr. Kobina also revealed that the mother of his son has not been well but since the misbehavior of their son, her condition has become worse.

Prior to the commencement of the exams, a paper was allegedly leaked to help the students pass the exams. The Ghana Education Service, however, debunked this claim.

YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that 14 students who were engaged in various indiscipline acts during WAEC’s Integrated Science paper have been dismissed from their schools.

They have also been barred from writing the current examination which is expected to end in soon.

In a Press release sighted by YEN.com.gh as issued by the Ghana Education Service (GES) these 14 students were dismissed for indiscipline in the ongoing West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
