The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Saturday 10th September, 2016, conducted random checks on West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) Centers across the country.  The move was part of the Commission’s focus to improving integrity in the Educational Sector.

Following the Commission’s intervention, in coordination with the Police and Education Officer, Kono, two pupils, (names withheld) at the Koidu Secondary and Experimental Secondary Schools, Koidu City, Kono District, were caught with cell phones containing model answers to the 2015/2016 WASSCE Mathematics examination paper. Our initial investigation has revealed that these pupils had gained access to the Mathematics questions prior to the Examinations from social media.

The ACC briefly took the pupils into care after the paper, questioned and released them to continue taking the other papers. However, both phones are in the custody of the Commission for further investigation.

Meanwhile, the Commission notes that examination malpractice has become an issue of public interest, as it has the potential to undermine the human resource base of the country. It is with this in mind that the ACC has heightened its surveillance of examination centers nationwide to detect and prevent examination malpractices. The Commission is mindful that with the reopening of schools, there is the tendency for authorities to demand unauthorized extra-charges from parents for admission.

The Commission wishes to assure the public that it will continue to be vigilant in detecting and preventing corruption nationwide.
