This is not the best of times to write WASSCE- Mahama



Former President and National Democratic Congress flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has told the Final-year Senior High School students writing the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) that this is not the best of times to sit for an exit Examination.


In a Facebook on Monday morning, John Mahama said “this 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”.

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.


Be assured that my prayers and that of over 30 million Ghanaians will stay with you every single day until the examination is over. Please remember to observe the #COVID19 protocols before, during and after the exams.


Good luck.
