Wahala as GES makes student travel 7hrs to receive Ghc200 as award [WATCH]

Several people are upset with the Ghana Education Service for forcing a kid travel 428 kilometers to earn the GHc200 prize for being the top student.

A student from the Simon Diedong Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies (SDD UBIDS) was reportedly forced to travel by certain GES officials in the Gushegu District in order to get GHc200 for being the top WASSCE student of his time.

Once the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results were announced in 2022, Abdul-Latif Fawei was recognized as the top student in the Gushegu area.

In order to thank him for being the smartest student with an excellent mark, the Ghana Education Service requested the young guy, who is currently attending college, to travel to the Gushegu district.

According to reports, the young man traveled 122 kilometers to Gushegu after traveling 306,4 kilometers from Wa to Tamale on the authorities’ request.

Narrating his frustration to the media, he revealed “I went to Gushegu on the 6th March day that was yesterday for the award as best WASSCE student of Gushegu SHS. I was presented with an envelope (containing 200 ghc) by the education director”
