The Education Minister and the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) were the only ones given access and passwords to approve protocol placement into Category A senior high schools.
This was to curb fraud, but The Fourth Estate‘s investigations found that placement into such schools happened through a network of intermediaries that included cleaners and security guards.
Also, it found that an investigation requested by the Director-General of GES into allegations of corruption in the placement system was abruptly discontinued by two state security agencies.
