At least fourteen teacher trainees who sat for the just ended teacher licensure examination have been arrested for their roles in exams leakage across the country.

The teachers according to the National Teaching Council (NTC) are currently assisting Police in investigations.

There were reports on Wednesday that some of the questions set for the exams leaked with long delays characterizing the exams at various centres.

The Executive Director of the NTC, Dr Evelyn Oduro said the Council will not bow to pressure from certain quarters to cancel the entire exams despite certain hitches.

She added that the Council will ensure that candidates who fails the exams will not receive their license to teach.

“Some people were found with their mobile phones having items we suspected to be questions so we handed them over to the Police for further interrogation. One person from Mount Mary, four people at Hohoe and then Koforidua we had eight people, then one in Abetifi. The integrity of the paper is key for us and if you’re going to write to write the answers then there’s no point writing any paper.

Asked if the questions will be canceled, Dr Evelyn Oduro answered “For now we cannot say that, we’ve not gone to mark, there are speculations. We need mark we need exhibits before we can say we’ve cancelled.”
