The Member of Parliament(MP) for Wa Central, Dr. Rashid Pelpuo has said that purchasing pass questions for students in Senior High School(SHS) by the government is a “high crime”.
The government of Ghana in its effort to complement the studies of final year students who are currently sitting for their final exams by providing them with past questions.
However, after the Integrated Science paper, some students in some schools across the country engaged in violent demonstrations while some were also seen in videos which went viral on social media insulting the President for providing them with past questions when he knows they won’t be repeated.
The students have since been sanctioned by the Ghana Education Service for the gross disrespect and the destruction of school property.
But reacting to the provision of past questions for the students, MP for Wa Central, Dr. Rashid Pelpuo believes that using government machinery to purchase past questions for students compromises the examination as well as being criminal.
He was shocked that government will engage in such impunity.
Dr. Rashid Pelpuo said “Using the name of Gov’t machinery to perpetuate such high crime is unforgivable. How could we attempt to buy exam questions to undermind the exam system with such dire impunity?”.
