Authorities of the Bright Senior High School at Kukurantumi in the Eastern Region say they will comply with any sanctions that may be handed over to their students if found culpable.

On Thursday, August 6, some students of the school reportedly beat up WAEC officials who were invigilating them in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for allegedly tightening security during the exams.

As a result, the West African Examinations Council moved the school’s exam centre to the Ofori Panin Senior High School.

The Director of Communications at the school, Dr. Isaac Asare in an interview with Citi News called on relevant stakeholders to temper justice with mercy.

“We also want to apologise to the people of Ghana, the public, WAEC officials who fell victim to the incident and all stakeholders of the examinations. The laws of Ghana stand supreme and so whatever the law prescribes, we will obey. We will also make sure that the rights of the school and the students are not trampled upon. We still plead with the president of the nation, the victims, and stakeholders who matter in this. We are not battling WAEC and we will not fight anyone. We are very sorry that this thing happened at our school.”
