He said, “together with your parents and teachers, our dear nation has made great contributions over the past nine (9) years of your education and now is the time for you to finish well and excel”.
“Thanks to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s commitment to prioritise education, all successful candidates who qualify for placement in any of our public senior high or technical and vocational schools will enjoy the Government’s Free Senior High School (SHS) or Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)”. Dr Adutwum said.
The Education Minister encouraged all candidates, invigilators, supervisors, school authorities and teachers to observe all COVID-19 safety protocols as they write the exams devoid of all forms of examination malpractice.
“Let me assure you that my Ministry is working hand-in-hand with the Ghana Education Service, West African Examination Council and the Security Services to ensure a smooth and peaceful examination at all the 2,158 designated centres across the country”. Dr Adutwum said.
