A Deputy Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Richard Nyamah has asked the public to ignore the comments by Builsa South Member of Parliament Dr Clement Apaak that the results of this year’s West African Secondary School Examinations (WASSCE) were procured through massive cheating.
He said the opposition lawmaker is engaging in propaganda.
“His propaganda is not helpful. If the NDC had resolved all the issues, we wouldn’t have these issues. so he should take a second look at what he is saying,” he said on the New Day show on TV3 on Monday December 13 with host Johnnie Hughes.
Dr Apaak had criticised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for comparing the 2021 results of the WASSCE to the records of former President John Dramani Mahama.
President Akufo-Addo in a short statement released by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin on Saturday December 11 tat was reacting to the results, said “The 2021 WASSCE results of the second batch of the Akufo-Addo graduates” show 54.08% of students recoding AI-C5 in English, as opposed to 51.6% in 2016, 65.7% recording AI-C6 in Integrated Science in 2021, as opposed to 48.35 in 2016, 54.11% recoding AI-C6 IN Mathematics, as compared to 33.12% in 2016 and 66.03% recording AI-C6 in Social Studies, as compared to 54.55% in 2016. Lest we forget, the 2021 batch of students were the pioneer of the double track system , which elicited a lot of vilification and unfounded criticism on its introduction.”
