Former President John Dramani Mahama has wished all candidates of the 2020 West Africa Senior Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) well as they begin their exams on Monday.

This year’s exams have been preceded by controversy over whether it was prudent for government to allow the students to get back to school in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“This is certainly not the best of times to sit for an exit examination, but bear in mind that you have made yourself, your parents and the entire nation proud for your outstanding courage to write at this time,” the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said in a statement issued on Monday.

He asked the students to remember to observe the safety protocols on Covid-19.

Below is the full statement of the former president:

Best wishes to our gallant WASSCE candidates who are beginning their exams today. This is certainly not the best of times to sit for an exit examination, but bear in mind that you have made yourself, your parents and the entire nation proud for your outstanding courage to write at this time.

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.

Good luck.
