Cape Mount CEO Warns Against Bribery
By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, May3 (LINA) - Ahead of this year’s West African School Certificate Exams (WASCE), an official of Grand Cape Mount County school system has threatened to expel any 9th and 12th grader caught offering bribe to examiners.
County Education Officer (CEO) Dwight Harvey also said any District Education Officer (DEO), principal or teacher caught receiving bribe from students during the examination will face the full weight of the law of Liberia.
Harvey sounded the warning on Friday, when he paid a surprise visit to the Robertsport High School in the capital city of Grand Cape Mount County, Robertsport.
He emphasized that his administration will not allow anyone to bring discredit to the education system of Grand Cape Mount County.
The county education boss explained that any student caught cheating during the examination will not only be expelled, but will also face legal action, because, he noted, government attaches high importance to quality education.
Meanwhile, the county education boss has urged students to refrain from any negative acts that will undermine their learning process as well as bring disgrace to the county.
