The PTA Chairman of Sekondi College (Sekco), Isaac Cobbinah, who also doubles as the Western Regional PTA Chairman, has rendered an unqualified apology to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the insubordinate act of some final year students of the school.
The 2020 West African Senior Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) has been characterized by violence as some students claimed the Integrated Science paper they wrote on Monday was too difficult coupled with strict invigilation, among others.
So far, students of Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School and Juaben Senior High School, both in the Ashanti Region, as well as their mates at Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School in the Savanna Region, engaged in riots.
Invigilators of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) were also assaulted and seriously injured by students of Bright Senior High School in Kukurantumi in the Eastern Region on Thursday over strict invigilation.
In the Western Region, about four students of Sekondi College did a video recording of themselves insulting the President and daring the President to dash them marks, else, he will face their wrath among other abusive language.
“Nana Addo, you are also in your final year, so you better give us good marks…, or else,” they said in the video.
On Friday, the Ghana Education Service (GES) cracked the whip as three students of Sekco were summarily dismissed
According to the PTA Chairman, an agreement reached by the stakeholders in the settlement of this incident include rendering an apology to the President, allowing the boys to write their exams while investigations go on unabated.
Reacting to the development on the Omanba-pa show on Connect FM, the PTA Chairman apologized profusely to the President through the Western Regional Minister, Kobby Otchere-Darko Mensah and condemned such act.
