The infamous “all die be die” comment by main opposition leader Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo some years back has found its way into an examination exercise.
A question in a Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) English Language mock exercise of the Pusiga District of the Upper East Region asked students to find the word nearest in meaning to ‘Canvass’, which was in a sentence with Nana Addo’s ‘All die be die’
The exercise and the consideration that went into it has since been labelled ‘cheap’.
The GES Regional Director for Upper East, Janet Kawia, has condemned the act and indicated that an investigation will be launched into the matter, and appropriate steps will be taken to resolve the issue. she said:
“I find a big problem with this. Unfortunately, I am not even in the region but in Kumasi at the moment for a workshop. In fact, it is no question for a student to answer, so, I will find out, and if it is true, we will have to sanction the group of teachers or the teacher [who set the question],”
