Outrage as 81% of Ghana law school students fail exams.

Published

Law students in Ghana’s sole legal training institution have protested a mass failure in their recent professional examination.

Figures from the Ghana School of Law 2017/2018 final exams indicated that only 91 students (representing 19%) out of the 474 candidates passed.

206 students failed the exams outrightly whiles the remaining 177 were referred in a number of subjects. The situation threatens their dreams to be called to the bar this year.

Student leadership in a press conference earlier this week protested the results and demanded that an independent body remarks the scripts. According to them, the school’s Independent Examinations Body (IED) lacked diligence and integrity.

“We think that the Independent Examinations Body had not been diligent in their duties in the marking of our results,” Students Representative Council (SRC) president Sammy Gyamfi told the state-owned Daily Graphic.

“We think the IED is an inefficient, ineffective, illegal and amorphous body, which does not have the competence to conduct professional examinations for professional legal students in Ghana,” he stressed.

The GSL is currently the only institution that provides training for law graduates in the Barrister at Law programme. The mass failure comes at a time the legislature is seeking to legalise an entry exam and interview for persons seeking admission into the school.

Meanwhile, a lawmaker and lawyer, Inusah Fuseini, has told the students to head to the court for redress if they feel their rights have been violated. According to him, press conferences will not take them far in seeking redress.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
