Education Minister, Yaw Osei Adutwum has taken a swipe at the 2020 Vice Presidential candidate of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) and former Education Minister, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman over her allegations that last year’s WASSCE was leaked which is why they passed the examinations.
Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, speaking in an interview on Woezor TV, strongly doubted the good performance of the students wasn’t inspired by leaked questions that, according to her, were made available to the students before writing their exams.
“This same group whose performance is supposed to be so outstanding that we shouldn’t be talking, it is the group I am referring to, ok? And they went and wrote the exam. We heard of the leakage of exams. We heard of invigilators being compromised. We have heard of many many things and we also saw the students come out and speak about no, this is not what we were told would happen. Now these students have A’s and we are happy? It’s up to us,” she accused.
Speaking on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’, Hon. Yaw Osei Adutwum expressed disappointment in Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang for not attributing the school children’s excellent performance to their own hard work and the government’s free SHS policy.
He advised Prof. Naana Opoku Agyeman and political opponents to stop finding fault with everything the government does, particularly when it is a good initiative.
“Naana Opoku is somebody I respect a lot but the things she’s saying are not appropriate. It’s not appropriate to say the school children passed their exams because there was a leak,” he snapped.
