The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Tarkwa- Nsuaem Municipal Assembly, Hon. Benjamin Kessie has advised 2021 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates to spend enough time studying instead of resorting to prophets or pastors for spiritual directions for success in their exams.
A seminar was held by the Church of Pentecost Schools Outreach Ministry in collaboration with Ghana Education Service Directorate and Chiefs of Tarkwa na Aboso at the Church of Pentecost auditorium (Tarkwa Area) for 4,096 BECE candidates in the municipality on Thursday 11th November 2021.
Addressing the candidates, Hon. Benjamin Kessie cautioned them to make the last few days productive, adding that no amount of concoction can bring them success if they take their studies for granted. He therefore admonished parents to refrain from camping their wards for spiritual consultations prior to the exams and even after the exams. He also said the likes of special toffees, pens, oils and other items from pastors or prophets do not guarantee victory in their exams.
He further urged invigilators to be more friendly and approachable to the candidates.
The Municipal Education Director, Mr. Alex K. Duah said the Assembly has done everything possible to prepare them thoroughly for the exams.
