2,000 pupils write FSLC in Meme

Government fight against schools boycott in the Northwest and Southwest Regions as evinced by Ambazonia separatists, seems to have yielded some dividends, causing in its wake, an announcement by the Meme Delegation for Basic Education to the effect that over 2,179 candidates have written the First School Leaving Certificate, FSLC examination for 2018.
Delegate Sabas Atem Asong, who visited the writing centres alongside other local administrators in Kumba said the examination could have been completely hitch free, but for a few absences registered at some centres. He told reporters that the examination was conducted according to prescription from hierarchy.
But, for schools within Kumba I, II, and III Sub-Divisions which must have produced this number, other sub-Divisions within Meme like Mbonge and Konye had a difference story to tell.
In Konye Sub-Division for instance, The Rambler learnt that only five pupils succeeded in sitting in for the exams, representing the subdivision. The five we learnt, were transported to Kumba where they wrote because of insecurity in their own localities. Basic Education officials said before the crisis started, the Sub-Division usually presently over 2,000 pupils for the same exam.
In all it was a hitch free 2018 session of the exams in Meme, as some parents and guardians accompanied their children to writing centres alongside security officials.
