A lecturer with the Cape Coast University says the head of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in Ghana must take the ultimate responsibility for the massive leakage of West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) questions by leaving his post.
According to Dr. Kenneth Aikins, such an action will indicate that WAEC does not tolerate unethical breaches and is willing to deal with it.
The comment comes on the back of the widespread leakage of examination questions and answers on social media platforms in Ghana.
“We need to find out from WAEC and other bodies the timing of questions, the people involved in the process. We should be heading towards a kind of system where the personnel is reduced to the nearest minimum. For me, if the leakage has come out, whoever is in charge at WAEC should resign to show that he/she has accepted some responsibility,” he said.
Also commenting on the development, an examiner, who wanted to remain anonymous said WAEC should adopt measures to stop the practice.
