The Commissioner for Education, Prof. Kaniye Ebeku, said a student in one of the schools in the state alleged that the principal collected money from candidates to allow them cheat.
Ebeku, in a text message, said, “All allegations of corrupt practices in the ongoing WASSCE will be investigated.
“Currently, we have no such report; bear in mind it is important to hear from the other party.”The student had said, “Each of us was asked to pay N1,000 for Mathematics, another N1,000 for English Language and N500 for other subjects in order to cheat.”
But the principal, while speaking on a radio station on Wednesday, said, “I don’t know what the child is saying. I am going to bring out that child to say it before me that I collected N1,000 from them. I have never done it in my life and I have never thought of it too.”
