Former President of the Republic of Ghana and flag bearer for the direct opposition party, National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has sent well wishes to final year Senior High School (SHS) students who will take the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from today,Monday (July 20, 2020).
Taken to his Facebook page former president Mamaha wished them a good luck as he express his disappointment in the ruling government to conduct an exam for them in the mix of a global pandemic.
He also hail the students for their outstanding courage to write at this time in a global pandemic.
“Best wishes to our gallant WASSCE candidates who are beginning their exams today. This is certainly not the best of times to sit for an exit examination, but bear in mind that you have made yourself, your parents and the entire nation proud for your outstanding courage to write at this time.
Ghana has for successive years been known and celebrated for producing the best WASSCE results in West Africa, and that is why, you, even before stepping into the examination hall, are already our heroes. Nothing can change that.
Be assured that my prayers and that of over 30 million Ghanaians will stay with you every single day until the examination is over. Please remember to observe the #COVID19 protocols before, during and after the exams.
Good luck.” His post reads
A parent who is identified as Rosemond Obeng following her Facebook name was not convinced with the good luck wishes from Mahama as she took to the comment section of his post to say, his wish could be a bad luck for the final year students sitting for the exam when he(Mahama) was against their enjoyment of free education.
She also advised Mahama to rather wish himself a good luck in the ongoing airbus saga.
However, some really appreciate his wish as they gave positive comments.
