Final Year Student Boycotts WASSCE On Saturday Because Of Sabbath

A final year Senior High School(SHS) student has revealed that he refused to write a WASSCE paper over the weekend.

The student boycotted the Asante Twi paper because it was scheduled to be written on Saturday, August 8, 2020.

The student told Philip Osei Bonsu on Asempa FM on Monday that he boycotted the paper because of his beliefs as an Adventist.

He revealed that writing the examination would have contravened his beliefs and desecrated the Holy Sabbath hence his decision not to write.

He revealed that he will not forsake his beliefs for anything and will repeat the decision when confronted with the same challenge in future.

” Yes I did not write, It was Asante Twi and I refused to write the paper because I believe in my beliefs. My Church has beliefs and I’m sticking to it. Our Church petitioned the President but the petition was not agreed upon. For now, I can’t write Asante Twi and If I will have to write that paper it will be Nov/Dec”

“I don’t see any other subject as superior to the other. If it were core Maths or Integrated Science I still wouldn’t have written the paper. I will never write any paper on Saturday going forward. Anything that will destroy my observance of the Sabbath I will never do it. In my school, we are three boys who didn’t take part in the exams. There are other Adventists who took part in the exams.”
