The West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations(WASSCE) begins today in Ghana amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Ghana President and Presidential candidate for 2020 election, John Mahama, in a statement released today had called the candidates that would be writing this year WASSCE - heroes.
He stated, "Ghana has for successive years been known and celebrated for producing the best WASSCE results in West Africa, and that is why, you, even before stepping into the examination hall, are already our heroes. Nothing can change that".
He advised them to strictly observe COVID 19 safety protocols.
Nigeria is yet to announce a formal date for the commencement of WAEC exams. This is to prevent the spread of the virus among students.
The Nigerian Minister of State for Education had previously hinted that talks were ongoing with Ghana, Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Liberia on postponing WAEC last Friday.
