A-Z school calls on Akufo-Addo over the fate of 20 students 

By Clement Edward Kumsah
WAEC

Management of A-Z preparatory and Junior high School has appealed to President Akufo-Addo to order the
West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to release the results of their 20 students who sat for the 2017 Basic Education Certificate Examination since WAEC has refused to obey the court order.

Below is the full Petition from A-Z school

PETITION BY A-Z PREPARATORY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL

Management of the above basic school is by this appealing to Your High Office to assist in ensuring the future of some twenty (20) pupils will not be in jeopardy.

The above school presented forty (40) candidates to write the 2017 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) released the results and twenty (20) out of the forty candidates results of the English Language Paper were withheld and later cancelled.

In February 2018, seventeen (17) out of the twenty whose English Paper results were withheld and cancelled re-sit the paper.

The re-sit results were released in the month of May/June 2018, and they all passed with grades such as 1, 2, 3 and 4. Since the release of the result, WEAC has refused to release that of the seventeen candidates to enable them be placed in various Senior High Schools under the Computerized School Selection Placement System.

Hitherto, parents and guardians of the twenty (20) candidates took the matter to the Human Right High Court in Accra. On 4th July 2018, the court ruled in favour of the twenty (20) candidates, thereby ordering WAEC to release the results.

Instead of releasing the results, WAEC in August 2018, went for a stay of execution from another Human Right High Court in Accra.  On August 14, the Human Right High Court in Accra in its ruling declined the stay of the execution and ordered WAEC to release the result.

It has been over a month after the ruling but WAEC has been adamant in releasing the result which is not only putting pressure on parents and guardians of these children but also jeopardizing the future of these children.
The school is by this petition, bringing the issue to the attention of your esteem office for investigations and to prevail on WAEC not to use their excessive institutional power to destroy the future of these young and innocent children.

Sir, the school is wondering how a candidate, which had aggregate 16, was declared by WAEC as haven aggregate 31. How WAEC would declare that these candidates had 9 in English and Mathematics.
Sir, the petitioner, though is the proprietor of the school; he is also a parent who is highly traumatized by the actions and inaction of WAEC, its staff, agents and assigns.

Kindly fined the attached the results of all the seventeen candidates and the ruling by the Human Right High Court in Accra.
Counting on your assistance.
Thank you
