Gov’t has instructed CAGD to release ¢50m to Gov’t has instructed CAGD to release ¢50m to WAEC – MP – MP

The money should be accessible by no later than next Tuesday, according to the Kwesimintsim constituency member of parliament (MP), who is also a former director general of the National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA).

The legislator voiced concerns over the prompt completion of the exams on Thursday since the government had GHC23m in arrears.

Dr. Armah affirmed that the government did indeed owe the WAEC the aforementioned sum, but that the government was actively trying to pay this debt in order to ensure the success of the 2022 tests.

It’s vital to remember that WAEC allocated Gh128,000,000 in its budget for the conduct of the BECE and WASSCE in 2021. Government had paid Gh105,000,000 out of this enormous sum; that is a significant portion of the overall budget they provided.

“So, sure, there is a Gh23,000,000 outstanding debt for 2021. He must realize that government cash-roll in terms of income creation is accumulating on a daily basis therefore we need to acquire the money and be able to distribute to the various sectors of the country. WAEC also proposed a budget for the 2022 WASSCE, and they anticipate that some payout would be made.

They thus submitted and anticipate that those funds will be made available in order for the 1st August inspection to take place,” he said.

“WAEC had initially demanded 6 million, but the government was dedicated to distributing education fairly. He continued by assuring the populace that the controller accountant general had been directed to make 50 million Ghana Cedis available.

“So I’ll reassure the people that government is highly dedicated to making sure the 2022 test is performed and conducted effectively.”
