The deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary Education, Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa, has said that President Mahama has no mandate to sack the head of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Rev. Sam Nii Nmai Ollennu.

Many people have said that Rev. Ollennu be dismissed after five papers in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) were cancelled due to a massive leakage.

The papers are part 2 of English Language; Religious and Moral Education; Integrated Science; Mathematics, and Social Studies.

But the South Tongu MP said Rev. Ollennu was appointed by the WAEC council which bars the President from relieving him of his post.

"As you may have noticed, Government has come heavy on WAEC. WAEC is an independent international organization. It has been in our country since 1952; I have heard some people asked government why it is not sacking the WAEC boss and dissolve the board.

“If you look at Act 719 (2006), we do not have that mandate; we did not appoint Reverend Olenu and President Mahama didn't appoint him.

“He applied by responding to an advert by the council of WAEC which is a West African body; so they can only terminate his appointment or perhaps he himself if he so decides to resign" Ablakwa explained.
