WASSCE Candidate Delivers In Exams Hall, Returns To Complete Paper

Operatives of the National Security have arrested one Gideon Darko, who is reported to be behind the rogue website, Jerusalema, which is purported to be leaking question papers in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The suspect was arrested on Friday at his hideout in Kasoa in the Central Region.

Last week, WAEC announced that it had rescheduled two papers after detecting a possible leakage of the questions on social media and on “rogue” websites prior to the exams that was due last Wednesday.

“The cheating social media groups were in full swing prior to the conduct of the mathematics and the English language papers on 9th and 13th September,” the Head of the Council’s Test Administration Division, George Ohene-Mantey, said.

The Head of Legal at WAEC, Reverend Victor Brew, revealed that his outfit is working with all relevant agencies to ensure that the suspect faces the law.

“There is this gentleman called Gideon Darko who was arrested at Kasoa on Friday, September 17, 2021. We have actually been doing some surveillance underground which led to his arrest.”

“This actually is not the first time because when the examinations start, this “Apor” thing is a whole big thing around the country but we set our intelligence in motion right from the start and it led to his arrest”.

Meanwhile, WAEChas announced new dates for writing the Physics and Business Management papers which were postponed.

WAEC in a statement said the Physics exam will be taken on Friday, October 1, 2021, while the Business Management exam will be written on October 7, 2021 at 8.30am and 1:00pm respectively.

Covid-19: GHS To Start Immunisation Exercise For Unvaccinated Citizens On Friday

The delivery on Tuesday evening,  the biggest so far, adds to previous ones of 177,600 and 244,800 doses received in August and September respectively.

The vaccine deliveries are part of the historic COVID-19 vaccine advance procurement agreement signed on 28 March 2021 by AVAT for the purchase of 220 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson single-shot COVID-19 vaccine, with the potential to order an additional 180 million doses.

In total, the 400m vaccines acquired by AVAT are sufficient to immunise a third of the African population. Ama Amoah, Senior Specialist Digital & Internal Communications, Communications and Events Afreximbank, handed over the consignment to Dr Elysee Karikari Agyeman a Member of Health Commodity Group for COVID-19 at the Ministry of Health.

She emphasized that the vaccines were acquired by the Ghana government and not a donation.

The Member States who have ordered vaccines through AVAT will continue to receive shipments for the next following months.

AVAT was established by the African COVID-19 Vaccine Acquisition Task Team, set up in November 2020 under the African Union chairmanship of President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa.

It is part of the African Union’s COVID-19 Vaccine Development and Access Strategy, and its goal of vaccinating at least 60 percent of the African population with safe and efficacious vaccines against COVID-19.

The agreement with Johnson & Johnson was made possible through a US$2 billion facility provided by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), who are also the Financial and Transaction Advisers, Guarantors, Instalment Payment Advisers and Payment Agents, and the support of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) who coordinated the alignment of the AU Ministers of Finance on the financing arrangements.

Chief of Assin Nsuaem, Nana Kwabena Wadie III, had during proceedings, pleaded with the Court presided over by Mr Samuel Etsie Jnr, for an out-of-court settlement which was granted and the case was adjourned to Friday, November 5, 2021.

It may be recalled that 15 aggrieved Assembly Members were denied their constitutional rights of taking part to confirm the District Chief Executive for the District, after they missed the date for the confirmation.

When they heard that the event was taking place without them, they besieged the forecourt of the Assin South District Assembly with bottles of schnapps, eggs, and slaughtered a ram and rained curses on the officials.
