The Coalition of Concerned Teachers of Ghana (CCTG) have called for the head of Reverend Samuel Nii Nmai Ollenu, the Director General of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), over the mass leakage of some papers of the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Five papers of the Examination were cancelled on Wednesday after the Council detected that they have been compromised.

A statement issued on Wednesday, June 17 listed English Language 2, Religious and Moral Education 2, Integrated Science 2, Mathematics 2 and Social Studies 2 as the compromised papers.

But speaking on TV3 Wednesday, the National President of CCT-G, Ernest Opoku said any well-meaning head of an examination body would have resigned from this fallout.

He explained that WAEC cannot be absolved of blame since they set the questions, keep the papers in their strongroom and distribute them to the various centers.

“The state security must investigate this thoroughly so that whoever is involved should be punished,” Mr. Opoku said.

“WAEC should take the blame. That is why I am saying that I don’t see why the WAEC boss should still be at post.”

He also indicated that teachers who would be found culpable in having colluded with WAEC officials for the mass leakage should not be spared.
