Child Rights International Threatens Legal Action Against WAEC Over Bunkprugu BECE Candidates

By | June 7, 2017

The Executive Director of Child Rights International, Bright Appiah, has asked the West African Examinations Council, WAEC to soften its stance on the fate of the more than 200 candidates from Bunkpurugu who could not write the first two papers of this year’s BECE.

The candidates missed the English Language paper One and Two on Monday because they could not locate the examination centres.

Earlier reports suggested that the candidates might be allowed to take the papers on Saturday.

But WAEC has denied the claims saying, the only opportunity for them is to join private candidates and write in January.

This means these pupils will not have the chance to enter SHS this academic year which begins in September.

Speaking to Radio Ghana, Mr. Appiah said, this cannot be accepted and threatened to take legal action against WAEC if the children are not made to write the examination as soon as possible.
