Credible information gathered by your authoritative banewsgh.com indicates that  authorities of St. Anthony Senior High School in Nkawkaw-Amanfrom in the Kwahu-West District of the Eastern region are preventing some final year students from writing the ongoing  WASSCE.

The decision comes in the wake of some of the students’  refusal and inability to pay what is termed as “invigilators’ inducement fee” and school fees in full. Students who have not paid these monies in full are prevented from entering the examination for some time as a punishment before been allowed to write the exams.

Some students who spoke to banewsgh.com on condition of anonymity disclosed that they were billed GH¢50 each by the school authorities so that the amount accrued could be used to induce invigilators  in this year’s WASSCE.

He added that those who refused to pay the amount are prevented from taking part in the examination  for over an hour by the school authorities spear-headed by the proprietor, Mr. Rexford Agbo,  a situation which is creating some level of anxiety and frustration among them .

Meanwhile, some of the students have threatened to invoke curses on the school authorities for what they describe as  unfairness in the distribution of the “apor”  after they had fully paid the “invigilators inducement fee”.
