Pupil Goes Blind 3 Days To BECE

A final year female pupil of Fielemuo Junior High School in the Upper West Region, Kunka Lucy, suddenly went blind three days before the start of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

She lost her vision on Friday at about 10pm, immediately she picked her books to study ahead of the Monday’s paper. She was taken to the Gbollu health Centre but nothing fruitful came out from there.

Lucy, hailed by her teachers as a great prospect for good grades, cannot take part in the examinations.

Her family members are down -hearted about her sudden blindness.

The Sissala West District Chief Executive, Moses Dramani Luri encouraged the 18-year-old not to be perturbed about her current situation and promised that everything would be done to restore her vision.

The BECE is the first huddle in Ghana’s Educational System for pupils in the Junior High School level.

The five-day examination began on Monday with the English Language paper and would end on Friday with ICT paper.
