2020 WASSCE Malpractices: Swedru Magistrate Court Convicts Students And Teachers For Impersonation

The Agona Swedru Magistrate Court has convicted 7 persons for impersonation in the 2020 West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The Seven persons include three students, two teachers and two administrators.

The prosecutor recounted in court on Wednesday that one George Agyekum, who is a complainant in the case led WAEC officials around when the final year SHS students were writing the WASSCE at the various Senior High Schools within Agona Swedru and its environs to check the conduct of the examination.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Chare Salia stated the WASSCE officials asked for the index numbers of some of the candidates and verification of their names in the database of WAEC showed there was some impersonation.

The police suspected Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw had impersonated Hotor Saviour; Clement Sarfo had impersonated Tetteh-Courtnay Clinton Larry, and Bawah David had also impersonated John Faati.

Additionally, he stated that Georgina Danso had also impersonated Odamatey Father Justice Nii Laryea while Desmond Oduro also impersonated Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw.

The prosecutor indicated the suspects were arrested and during interrogation, the suspects admitted that it was Richard Nkrumah and Cedric Sefah Akyeampong who contracted them to impersonate Huntor Savior, Tetteh-Courtnay Clinton Larry, John Faati, Odamatey Father Justice Nii Laryea and Coffie Boakye Nana Yaw to write the WASSCE Core subjects for them.

The named persons had earlier successfully written the Integrated Science and Social Studies papers. They had also already written paper two of Core Mathematics and were in the process of writing the Mathematics paper one when they were arrested.

“On August 20, 2020, Nkrumah and Sefah Acheampong who were at large were arrested and they admitted to the offence in their caution statement,” the Prosecutor added.

Georgina Danso, Desmond Oduro and David Bawah, second-year students of the Ngleshie Amanfrom SHS in the Greater Accra Region, were fined ¢1,200 each and barred from taking part in any WASSCE for three years.

An administrator at the Central High School at Agona Swedru, Osman Ahmed, and Clement Sarfo, a staff of the same school were both fined ¢1,200 each. Cedric Sefah Acheampong another teacher at Central High School was also fined ¢2,400.

A teacher at Ngleshie Amanfrom SHS, Richard Nkrumah, alias Emperor, who is also the Assistant Headmaster of Central High School, was sentenced to six months imprisonment.

The convicts initially pleaded not guilty to the charges of impersonation and abetment to commit a crime but they were found guilty at the end of the trial and were subsequently sentenced by the court on Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

After convicting the accused, the presiding magistrate, Isaac Apeatu, hoped that the conviction of the seven persons would serve as a deterrent to many others who have planned and would plan to undertake a similar enterprise.

The rate at which sexual immoralities are infiltrating tertiary institutions is increasing by the day, each with its own set of problems.

Students are either caught in the act of se3.x or twerking, or their bathroom videos are leaked.

A viral video shows the moments some Legon students were recorded on video, where the lady’s screams could be heard all the way through the hostel as she was banged in bed by her boyfriend.

During this time, the roommate stood up and began recording what was going on because she couldn’t stand the sounds that were being made.

The act, on the other hand, was observed to be taking place in a mosquito net that was draped around the double bed.

Caterers For The School Feeding Programme Goes Angry Over GH¢1.00 Per Child Feeding Grant

Caterers For The School Feeding Programme Goes Angry Over GH¢1.00 Per Child Feeding Grant

Some aggrieved caterers of the Ghana School Feeding Programme have sent a strong message to President Nana Akufo-Addo to reconsider the government’s Feeding Grant.

According to them, GH¢1.00 is not enough to purchase food items on the market to prepare quality meals for children.

The Chairperson for the Association, Juliana Cudjo, revealed this on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Wednesday.

“We urge the government to pay attention to the feeding grant because what we get is not significant. GH¢1.00 is not enough to prepare food for one person and even that one, they deduct GH¢0.03 and now we are left with only GH 0.97 to prepare food for one child.

“How is this possible? Things are very expensive in the market and so how do you expect us to cook food with GH 0.97. It affects the quality of food for the children,” a visibly angry Chairperson lamented.

According to her, though they appreciate the government for the introduction of the Programme and the great impact it is making in the lives of Ghanaian children in the deprived schools, it is becoming a problem.

Auntie Julie said despite the challenges they go through to prepare food, some of them are still managing to cook for the schoolchildren and therefore want the President to intervene immediately.

The government owes the school feeding caterers for the 1st term of the 2020/2021 academic year and the Minister, according to the caterers, had since not acted in good faith to ensure that the money is paid to them.

However, Edmund Gyebi, spokesperson for the Programme on the same show appealed to the caterers to calm down and exercise restraint, noting that everything is being done towards the upward adjustment of the feeding grant.

He, therefore, assured the caterers and Ghanaians in general that the government is genuinely committed to the sustainability of the Programme.
