WASSCE 2020: 70% Of “Akufo-Addo Graduates” Can’t Enter University—Educationist



WAEC released WASSCE’20 results last Thursday. The results for the core subjects reveal that, out of a total of 375, 763 candidates who sat the exams,

1. English

57.34% passed (A1-C6)

42.66% failed (D7-F9)

2. Maths

65.71% passed (A1-C6)

34.29 failed (D7-F9)

3. Science

52.53% passed (A1-C6)

47.47% failed (D7-F9)

4. Social

64.31% passed (A1-C6)

35.69 failed (D7-F9)

Following the release of the result, Counsellor Daniel Fenyi has revealed that, about 70% of the graduates, who the President usually called “Akufo Addo Graduates” cannot access university education with their grades.

The respected counsellor and educationist indicated that, the 47.47% who couldn’t pass “Integrated Science” automatically cannot be admitted into the university.

The remaining 42.66%, 34.29% and 35.69% (totalling 112.64%) who didn’t pass English, Maths and Social Studies respectively could constitute an additional 30% (given that there are intersections, i.e. 1 student may fail 2/3 core subjects). Hence, about 70% can’t progress to the university without a resit.

Counsellor Daniel Fenyi made this revelation on Kingdom 99.3FM last Saturday morning when he analysed the WASSCE results as an educationist.

The Counsellor insisted that before one gains admission into the university, one must obtain at least C6 in all the four core subjects (for three to be selected, i.e. English, Maths and either Science or Social) and any three elective subjects.

To him, it should be noted each specific university programme has its specific cut off grade hence any student who gets 36 (the required aggregate) even hardly gets admission due to the competitive nature of the admission processes. For example, to pursue Law, Medicine one must get aggregate 6 or 7, etc.

Counsellor Daniel Fenyi made the following recommendations about the educational system.

1. The free SHS policy needs a serious review. In 2019, 346, 098 candidates wrote the exams while in 2020, 375, 763 candidates wrote it. The increase in number is just 29, 665. Hence, the free SHS is not as impactful as it’s being politically twisted and hyped. To him, the increase in number does not merit the compromise in quality.

2. The double-track system must be abolished immediately. It’s a lazy approach.

3. Ghana must depoliticize the education system and allow trained educationists and technocrats to man the sector.

4. Universities must conduct entrance examinations before they admit the few who passed. Most results are not genuine- the excessive leakage of questions could contribute to it.

Akufo-Addo wanted me to investigate Mahama after he became NDC flagbearer – Martin Amidu



The former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has revealed that President Nana Akufo-Addo wanted him to probe former President John Mahama after he won the NDC primaries to become the party’s flagbearer.

In a lengthy statement in response to the President’s acceptance of his resignation, the former Attorney General stated that Akufo-Addo also consented to his decision not to investigate the former President over the Airbus Scandal.

Mr Amidu’s comment is in response to the Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo’s November 17 letter in which he claimed that the former Special Prosecutor had “erroneously and without moral or legal basis” decide to confer immunity on National democratic Congress Presidential Candidate, John Mahama in the Airbus Scandal.

But Amidu in his response stated that “I took the decision to hold in abeyance the investigation of former President John Dramani Mahama with the knowledge and consent of the President as the Chairman of the National Security Council on purely national security grounds and not politics.”

“The President also knows that he instructed a Minister of State while he the President was on a campaign tour in the Northern Region to liaise with me to explore whether or not it was prudent to investigate former President Mahama after he won his party’s primaries to be its flagbearer.

“The President was briefed as Chairman of the National Security Council as to why the investigation had to be held in abeyance till after the election and he consented to it. I can prove this with mathematical precision if the President so wishes,” he said.

In other news, Martin Amidu has fired fresh shots at the Presidency after Akufo-Addo received his resignation letter.

In a response to allegations levelled against him from the presidency, Mr Amidu accused President Akufo-Addo of being the head honcho of corruption.

He added that all the response from the presidency concerning his resignation and line of work were full of ‘public deceptions and propaganda’ which needed to be demystified.

Amidu described the Nana Addo as a president who took the presidential “oath while looking like the innocent flower of anti-corruption but being the mother serpent of corruption under it.”

He further emphasised that the Agyapa Royalties Transaction deal as the biggest corrupt deal in Ghana since independence.

“I resigned my position as the Special Prosecutor because of the traumatic experience I suffered from the reaction of the President who breached his Presidential oath by unlawfully obstructing me from taking any further steps on the Agyapa Royalties Transactions from 20th October 2020 to 1 November 2020.”

“When I met the President on 23rd October 2020, I received the shock of my life when he demanded that I took no further action on the Agyapa royalties transaction anti-corruption assessment report for another week.

That was when it was divinely revealed to me that the President whom I trusted so much for integrity only looked like the innocent flower of anti-corruption but he was really the mother corruption serpent under the innocent-looking flower,” he said.
