The Ministry of Education has condemned former President John Dramani Mahama’s recent remarks on the 2023 WASSCE results.

The NDC Presidential contender has questioned the validity of the latest results, claiming that some invigilators were taking breaks so professors could assist pupils in answering questions.

In response to the claim, the Ministry of Education declared that the negative remarks are a premeditated attempt to undermine the ministry’s significant progress in boosting learning outcomes in the country.

In a press statement sighted by JoyNews, the MoE stated that “we have made monumental progress in core subjects from an average 40.93 percent score (A1 –C6) in 2015 to a highly improved average of 69.73 percent score (A1 – C6) in 2023.”

Again, the MoE highlighted that Ghana had achieved the highest ever 8A1s between 2020 and 2023, with 411 out of 465 8A1s registered in West Africa.

The ministry described the former President’s assertion as a false misrepresentation of the facts which only seeks to malign “the integrity of the vast majority of our hard-working teachers and students.”

It urged all well-meaning Ghanaians to denounce the former President’s remarks while committing to maintain the country’s finest educational standards.

“The Ministry reiterates our commitment that the quality of education and examinations at all levels, including the WASSCE will not be compromised,” the statement added.
