Deputy ranking member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Dr. Clement Apaak has commended The Fourth Estate News for yet to be aired investigation into the Computerized School Selection and Placement System – (CSSPS).
According to the lawmaker, he has earlier called on the security agencies to investigate the process which he believes has been marred by corruption.
“I’ve long called for an investigation into allegations of corruption in the CSSPS placement of students. Some pay bribes to get their wards into grade A&B schools. Thanks to The Fourth Estate, we now have confirmation and a basis for action!” Mr. Apaak tweeted on Saturday, January 28, 2023.
“I expect the security agencies to leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of this matter. I have confidence in the two security agencies and I am sure they will do a good job.
“I expect that the investigations will be expedited without fear or favour and the report made public,” Dr Apaak emphasized in an earlier statement.
However, the 2023 school placement is yet to commence after the release of the BECE result by the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC).
