Child Rights International has given WAEC up to the 5th of next month to conduct fresh examinations for the 200 BECE candidates from Bunkpurugu who could not write the first two papers of this year's BECE.

Executive Director of the Organisation, Bright Appiah said failure by WAEC to heed the ultimatum will lead to a court action.

According to Mr Appiah, organisation's independent investigations have revealed that the failure of the candidates to write the examinations, was not through any fault of theirs, adding that in any circumstance, institutions are constitutionally bound to uphold the best interest of children.

Meanwhile, Members of Parliament's sub-committee on Education want the sector Minister, Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh to appear before the House to respond to issues concerning the fate of the Bunkpurugu candidates.
