The African Education Watch says it has sued the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for the service of suspected Examiners whose details reportedly leaked on the public domain during 2020 WASSCE.
An undisclosed number of Examiners with the Council contact details leaked on the internet during the conduct of the 2020 WASSCE for School Candidates, a situation WAEC admitted but said was unintentional.
The Head of National Office, WAEC, Mrs WendyAddy-lamptey commenting on the Examiners contact details leakage said the non-profit-making organization has over 20,000 Examiners, adding that the unintentional leak will not compromise the marking of the scripts which began September 28.
But, the Executive Director of the African Education Watch, Mr Kofi Asare in social media post sighted by Georgeweb.org announced his outfit has sued the Council for contracting such Examiners to mark the scripts of candidates, an act he said is against the international best standard.
According to him, WAEC’s decision to contract those script markers whose details were leaked online will affect the integrity of Ghana’s pre-tertiary assessment system and credibility of the WASSCE 2020 Certificate.
The Educationist further indicated an injunction application has been served to the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to stop them from contracting those script markers in marking of the 2020 WASSCE scripts.
Mr Kofi Asare said the return date for the Court hearing has been scheduled to next week Thursday October 8, 2020.
