Anti-corruption campaigner, Sydney Casely-Hayford says the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service should lead the investigations into the leak of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) questions and not the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI).

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) last Wednesday announced the cancellation of five papers in the ongoing BECE on the basis that they have been compromised. They are Papers 2 of English Language, Religious and Moral Education, Integrated Science Mathematics and Social Studies.

The BNI was directed to investigate circumstances leading to the leakage and subsequent cancellation of papers.

However, according to Casely-Hayford, the CID should investigate the leak of the BECE papers and not the BNI as it is a criminal issue and should be treated as such.

“I say the BNI [should not be involved], this is a CID matter. It is a criminal offence. Let them investigate and if it becomes the issue of National security, then it will be taken care of. But these are our local internal basic education examination questions.

“This is not a BNI issue, we are not threatening ECOWAS or any international system. I think it’s wrong and it is because of the way we are thinking and the way we are not attacking issues, that’s what makes it wrong.” he said on Citi FM‘s news analysis programme, The Big Issue on Saturday.
