Ghanaians have applauded President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s directive to the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its decision to ban 14 students from writing their West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The GES dismissed and barred 14 students of five Senior High Schools from writing their remaining papers over their involvement in acts of indiscipline and vandalism during the 2020 WASSCE.
The President in a statement argued that their dismissal is enough punishment and deterrent against future acts of indiscipline.
He is, however, hopeful that the students will be allowed by the GES to take their final examinations as scheduled.
This intervention from the President has received a lot of applauds from Ghanaians on social media who think the directive is “a step in the right direction.”
They also praised him for living up to the “father for all” tag and also for being a president who cares about the well-being of his fellow Ghanaians.
However, not every Ghanaian sees the President’s intervention as genuine.
According to some Ghanaians, the whole act was planned to ensure that President Akufo-Addo scores political points ahead of the December 2020 elections.
