It reads:
The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufu-Addo, has directed the Minister for Education, Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, to engage the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its decision to ban some fourteen (14) dismissed final year Senior High School students from taking the ongoing West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Even though the act of indiscipline undertaken by these students is intolerable, acts which have led to their subsequent dismissal from school, President Akufu-Addo is of the firm that dismissal alone is enough punishment, and will serve as enough deterrent against future acts of indiscipline.

The President believes that everyone deserves a second chance in life, and is, thus, hopeful that the students will be allowed by the GES to take their final examinations as scheduled.
