Member of Parliament for Subin has cautioned all candidates in his constituency to desist from any form of malpractice as this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (B.E.C.E) kicks off on Monday.
Mr Eugene Boakye Antwi told the candidates to reflect soberly on all that their teachers had taught them and what they had also learnt and write the examination in confidence.
Mr Antwi also wished the candidates well and took the chance to tout the Free SHS programme, saying that the candidates stand to benefit when they get into Senior High.
The deputy Works and Housing Minister made these remarks when he donated mathematical sets to schools across the constituency on Friday, June 7, 2019.
The gesture, according to the Member of Parliament, also formed part of his avowed commitment towards the pursuit of quality education in the area.
As early as 0800 hrs, Mr Antwi visited the Seventh Day Adventist JHS at Amakom, to kick-start the distribution of the sets to the candidates.
Receiving the items, school authorities were grateful for the MP’s unflinching support since the donation is not the first of its kind.
Education officials also used the opportunity to also appeal to teachers to stay away from the examination centres in order not to interfere in the exercise.
Later in an interview, most of the candidates showered praises to the lawmaker and promised to come out with flying colours.
In all about 6,500 candidates from 30 schools benefited from the MP’s gesture. 5 exercise books were also distributed to continuing students in all the schools he visited.
He was accompanied by some members of the ruling New Patriotic Party including Mr Sam Cudjoe, the Ashanti Regional second vice chairman of the party.
