Nana Ofori Owusu, the National Chairman of the progressive People’s Party (PPP) has called on the government to abolish the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM, Mr. Nana Ofori Owusu explained that many children are on the streets hawking because they couldn’t pass their basic examination, hence failed to further their education.
The PPP National Chairman advised that JHS students should be given an automatic pass to the Senior High Schools
“We have to abolish this BECE. The examination is not necessary . . . The statistics of last year and the year before, 40,000 failed. The year before about 45,000 and the year before, it was 100,000 plus. This is a very wicked system . . . PPP is of the view that this BECE thing should be abolished,” he told Kwami Sefa.
