District Chief Executive for Sagnarigu in the Northern Region, Alhassan Mohammed Sorigudoo has stated that the rate at which examination papers leak in the country is a threat to its development.

According to him, the leaked papers saga exposed corrupt practices at the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and in the country as a whole.

He made the comment during the distribution of a large quantity of Information and Communication Tools (ICT) by the Tamale Rotary Club in collaboration with the Sagnarigu District Assembly.

“I want to caution that corruption as the perception has always been is always been attributed to politicians: these are all forms of corruption and I don’t think any of the politicians is associated with this kind of act.

“If at this tender age of our students we are preparing their minds to engage in malpractices, we are preparing them towards a corrupt future, a corrupt society and a collapsed society and this is an issue we should all be worried about,” he emphasised.

Mr. Sorigudoo tasked parents and guardians to inculcate good morals in their children to enable them abhor corruption.

“We should do well to take very good care of our students and our children: I am calling on all stakeholders, parents, teachers and students that we should stop preparing the minds of the students towards malpractices and towards corruption because they will inculcate that and at any stage in their lives they will be thinking of dubious means of achieving their ambitions in life. In so doing we are heading towards total confusion and in the midst of confusion we cannot survive as a society and we cannot survive as a nation,” he said.

WAEC last Wednesday announced the cancellation of five papers in this year's Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) on the basis that they have been compromised. They are Papers 2 of English Language, Religious and Moral Education, Integrated Science Mathematics and Social Studies.

The Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) has since been directed to investigate circumstances leading to the leakage and subsequent cancellation of papers. So far, 14 people have been arrested for their alleged involvement.
