Education Minister, Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang says the ministry “will not compromise at all” for any guilty party in this year’s West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) paper leakages that has seen five Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) papers cancelled.

“All I’m hoping is that when everything is said and done, that there is no parent involved, that there is no invigilator involved, that there is no teacher involved, that there is no child involved. That there is no adult that we all look up to for responsible behaviour involved. If they are we take the action as may have been recommended by the committee. We will not compromise at all,” she told Radio Gold.

WAEC on 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.

The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) has been directed to investigate circumstances leading to the leakage and subsequent cancellation of papers.

The cancelled papers, according to WAEC, will be administered on 29 and 30 of June.
