Member of Parliament for Tema West Constituency who doubles as the deputy minister for Trade and Industries, Hon. Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah has advised the candidates sitting for the 2018 West Africa Secondary Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the Tema West Constituency to desist from all kinds of examination malpractices.
The member of Parliament gave this advice when he toured examination centres within the Tema West constituency and donated over one thousand mathematical sets to the WASSCE candidates.
Exhorting the candidates, Mr. Ahenkora charged the candidates to believe in God, also in themselves for there is nothing different apart from what they have learnt within their three years stay in their schools.
“I believe you are going to make me proud, because all the answers to the questions you will be asked is nothing different from what you have already learnt: just believe in God and also in yourselves that you can do it”. Mr. Ahenkora encouraged the candidates.
“But if you know you spent your time on Telenovelas and WhatsApp Chat, then you will find yourself wanting”, He added. The female students were also encouraged to rise above the culturally accepted phobia for Mathematics as that was what they were going to write for the day.
The over one thousand mathematical sets were shared to both the government and private schools students at the examination centres visited. 865 were shared at WAEC hall, while 540 mathematical sets and a cash donation of Ghc 500 was given at Tema Secondary School which happens to be the MP’s Alma Mater. This was in response to a request for a buzzer to aid preparations for National Science & Maths Quiz.
The Assistant Head, Academic and staff of Tema Secondary School commended the MP for his continuous support to the school and the motivation given them.
Mr. Carlos Ahenkora, pledged his commitment to support quality teaching and learning to the constituents of Tema West.
