Deputy Minister for Education, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour strongly believes the government's idea to spend GHc34.8 million to purchase past questions for 2021 WASSCE candidates under the free SHS program was “laudable”.
He claims the buying was not only to support some deprived schools – but also, it’s an “educational process”.
“Go to America, UK, South Africa, Liberia, Nigeria among others, the education sector always buy past questions for final year candidates,” he justified.
“Tell me who in Ghana has not benefitted from past questions before exams?” he questioned in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, 'Ghana Montie'.
His comment follows an argument from some members of the NDC and the general public that the purchase wasn’t necessary.
Some also indicated that the amount involved must be investigated.
