ACC secures conviction against WAEC examiner


Abdulrahman Sesay, an examiner of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) in 2016 assigned mark and grade West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) scripts for Awada Secondary School in Bo. He solicited from the Principal the sum of Le300, 000.00 per script and had a total of 30 scripts.

The court ordered the convicts to pay a fine of thirty million leones (Le30, 000,000) in three weeks from the date of conviction, after pleading guilty to the charge. Failing to pay, they will serve a jail term of three years.

The State was represented by Nigel B.E. Davies Esq. and Adrian B.C. Samuels Esq., and the convicts by J.K. Lansana Esq., S.O. Taylor Esq and T.P.M. Sowa Esq.

The Commission appreciates the cooperation received from the Proprietress and Principal of Awada School during the investigation and trial of this matter. The Commission further reiterates that, it will at all times continue to strengthen the fight against corruption nationwide.
