The Member of Parliament for Obuasi West, Kweku Kwarteng, says Ghana’s educational system would have advanced if the West African Examination Council (WAEC) had fair competition.

His comments came in the wake of the leakage and subsequent cancellation of five papers in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

WAEC last Wednesday announced the cancellation of five papers in the ongoing 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.

Hon. Kwarteng who observed that year in year out WAEC gives far more than enough reason for its integrity to be questioned, has noted that the only way to ensure efficiency is to give the Council competition.

“WAEC needs to strengthen its security arrangement. It has to be helped in this and the only thing to help WAEC do this is to give it competition. If you don’t fix this you’re out," he noted.
