The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) following several reported leaks of question papers in the ongoing WASSCE under the auspices of WAEC has called for an independent investigation into the matter.
According to the Association, all person after the investigation found culpable should be punished irrespective of the status of the individual.
The National President of NAGRAT, Angel Carbonu in an interview monitored by Georgeweb.org with the host of Citi Breakfast show, Bernard Avle said punishing culpable persons will bring an end to the annual examination leaks during the conduct of almost every WAEC examination.
“We think that an independent investigation body should be set up the government to thoroughly investigate the matter and punish persons found culpable”.
“This investigation should go beyond the West African Examination Council because the council has its integrity to protect. The Ghana Education Service will have its integrity to protect so they cannot set up any committee,” he added.
The NAGRAT president stressed that until the end of the leaks, the integrity of the WASSCE for School Candidates certificate is at stake.
Mr Carbonu furthered that “We are very disappointed with what is happening. In fact, the whole of yesterday, myself and my officers were discussing the integrity of this year’s exams.
“There is a particular West African country that we all thought that when to show you their certificate, we need to further interrogate the sanctity of that certificate and if we are not careful, we will also be gradually gravitating towards that situation,” he added.
