The terminal examinations for basic schools in the entire Keta Municipality which are supposed to be underway have been allegedly canceled.
It is reported that the exams was allegedly cancelled because question 14 of the Ewe exam paper was insulting of the President.
The controversial Question 14 of the Ewe paper reads: “Dukplɔla la vlo ŋutɔ” which translates "the president is very ugly."
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh on Dzifa Gunu's page, all basic school exams in the Keta Municipality have been canceled as question 14 of the Ewe paper insults the president.
According to Dzifa Gunu who happens to be an opinionated NDC supporter and an activist on Facebook, the directive for the cancellation of the basic exams came from the Municipal Director of Education.
He said all public schools within the Keta Municipality have been directed to “put on hold the writing of the test items currently ongoing, and the rest of the materials should be locked up until further notice.”
Still, on education, the Ghana Education Service issued a circular indicating that final year students in the Senior High Schools were to report to school on May 5.
This circular comes when most students were to be reporting to their various schools on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, as earlier announced by the GES.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the GES' official Facebook page, it noted that management has considered a proposal from the Conference of Heads of Assisted Senior Secondary Schools (CHASS) and has revised the academic calendar.
In other news, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that he will under no circumstance jail any of his appointees based on hearsay.
According to him, he will only jail his 'corrupt' appointees based on strong glaring evidence.
Akufo-Addo said mere allegations against some of his appointees will not be enough to open criminal proceedings against them.
