Do or die affair for you - MP tells BECE Candidates
Honourable Peter Lanchene Toobu

The Member of Parliament for Wa West Constituency, Honourable Peter Lanchene Toobu has called on all candidates sitting in for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to observe the exam as a “DO or Die” affair.

This he meant that students must learn hard for excellent grades.

“Let your BECE examination be a do or die affair for you by clicking only grade one and at most two, as the tomorrow you think of, is in your hands today”.

The revered Member of Parliament (MP) made the remarks when he visited some Junior High schools in his constituency to monitor a Mock Examination he organised for BECE Candidates in the constituency as part of his commitment to helping prepare the candidates adequately for their upcoming examination in November this year.

Addressing the students in their respective schools, the MP Rt. Peter Lanchene said he is passionate about education and will do his possible best to continue to invest in this critical sector.

“Your parents, teachers and I are behind you. Always remember that I have been like you before and hence you can also get to where I am today and even do better. It all depends on the efforts you put into this exam and your BECE. Learn hard and eschew fear and exam malpractices and the sky will be your limit” he told the candidates.

1,493 Junior High School candidates are expected to sit for this years’ exams in the Wa West District to prepare the candidates for their final examinations sponsored by the Member of Parliament, MP for the area.

Teachers and Students in the district expressed their appreciation to Hon Lanchene for organizing the mock exams for them.

The Member of Parliament earlier supported Olleteng Primary School by providing them with some furniture, Dabosiira as well as Nyonuuri basic schools were also provided with roofing sheets. 

He again provided Salmana School with some plastic chairs for teachers to use and extended electricity to Vieri R/C Methodist School.

Speaking to Radio Waa’s Salia Danis, the District’s Education Director for Wa West, Alhaji Alhassan Sumani lamented about the abysmal performance of BECE candidates for the previous years and indicated that, the Member of Parliament sponsored mock came in handy and was one of the interventions to meeting the performance growth of ten per cent (10%) over the previous record of 44%.

He added that the other strategies were to fully engage with PTA/SMC and also step up on supervision and monitoring.

“We will work assiduously to ensuring the kind of performance that we need to grow by ten per cent (10%) over the previous year and yes, we will actually do that”.

Alhaji Sumani also charged circuit supervisors to ensure that the mock questions are extensively discussed with the finalists.
