News making rounds and sourced from Nkilgi 103.7Fm, in Bole (Savannah Region) indicates that a BECE Supervisor for the ongoing nationwide examination forced a female candidate to urinate on her dress.
The female student is a candidate seating for the BECE from Kulmasa D/A Junior High School in the Sawla- Tuna-Kalba district of the Savannah Region.
According to the news gathered from the Facebook page of Nkilgi 103.7Fm, the student is alleged to have sought permission to visit the ladies during the examination on Monday 10th June. However, her request was turned down not once but twice. This compelled the female candidate to urinate on her uniform.

Her plea to be allowed to respond to nature’s call was turned down by the Assistant Headmaster of Tuna Senior High/Technical School who at the time of the examination was also the supervisor of this year’s BECE at the Tuna Examination centre.
The innocent student disclosed the treatment meted out to her to the Bole based Nkilgi FM and revealed that she felt like urinating on the day while the Religious and Moral Education Exams Paper 2 was ongoing on 10th June 2019 in the afternoon.
She asked for permission two times but the supervisor denied her the right to go out to urinate. She later urinated on herself in the exam room and subsequently collapse during the process and was rushed to the Tuna Health Center.
Bole based Nkilgi FM is following this story and will bring the details later.
Currently, it is not clear why the supervisor ignored the request made by the candidate but we hope to uncover the main reasons and issues that informed the decision of the supervisor and also to find out if the incident actually occurred.
There are rules governing the examination which prevents candidates from going out of the exams hall until at least 45 minutes after the commencement of the paper. At the same time, the candidates have the right to be excused for such issues with a police escort if suspected of trying to engage in any form of malpractice.
Until we hear from the supervisor, it will be unfair to pass any form of judgment on the matter.
