Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah, Governance Lecturer at the Central University, has condemned the leakage of West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) examination questions to students.
Speaking on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'', Dr. Otchere-Ankrah reprimanded officials of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) over such culture where students get the questions ahead of the exams stressing it's about time the WAEC officials, who engage in such activities, are found and sanctioned to deter others.
He explained such "recklessness and greed" of the officials puts the school children in traumatizing conditions, particularly when the leaked questions result in the cancellation of the results of the affected students or schools.
''The security agencies have the means to track the first person who sent that. They have the means of checking all those things. Let's investigate it well and sanction the offenders," he said.
Dr. Otchere-Ankrah also bemoaned examinations in general saying, "exams is not a good thing. It's not a good means of assessment because some people have passed exams but can't put what he passed into practice . . . Im not saying passing exams is bad but it shouldn't be the only yardstick''.
