PRESSLINE India delivers PRIMA-30 to WAEC in Ghana
Footprints of PRESSLINE India in the African regions keep spreading as presses from the Indian web offset manufacturer are constantly on demand from newspaper and book publishers as well as others including academic councils in the region. West African Examination Council (WAEC), headquartered at Accra in Ghana, has recently installed a PRESSLINE PRIMA-30 to print examination documents of the schools affiliated to the council.
Impressed with the unique features of the press from the Indian web offset manufacturer, West African Examination Council (WAEC) has recently installed PRESSLINE PRIMA-30 to print all the examination papers for the schools run under the council. “May the good plans the Lord has for you for 2016 be fulfilled. Remain blessed,” this was the cordial message to PRESSLINE India from Rev Sam NN Ollennu, head of WAEC, expressing his contentment of the printing press he received from the Indian manufacturer.
WAEC was established in 1952, after the Governments of Ghana (then Gold Coast), Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Gambia enacted the West African Examinations Council Ordinances in 1951. Liberia became the fifth member of the council in 1974. The enactment of the ordinances was based on the Jeffrey Report, which strongly supported the proposal for the setting up of a regional examining board to harmonise and standardise the pre-university assessment procedures in the then British West Africa period.
Today, the main objective of WAEC is to conduct examinations in public interest and to award certificates, provided the certificates do not represent lower standards of attainment than equivalent certificates of examining authorities in the UK. Also, the council has a vivid vision of making its examining body world class, adding value to the educational goals of its stakeholders.
The ultimate mission of WAEC, eying broadly across the continent, is to become Africa’s foremost examination body to provide qualitative and reliable educational assessments, encouraging academic and moral excellence and promoting sustainable human resource development and international cooperation, under the core values of integrity, professionalism, accountability, transparency and team work.
After all, WAEC finally chose PRESSLINE India’s press to print the required academic documents, particularly examination papers for its schools in the five-member countries across the continent. PRESSLINE PRIMA-30 fulfills the sheer requirement of the council. The press is featured with the configurations, such as Auto Splicer + 2Hi Tower + Half Page Folder with Quarter Page Folder and Online Gluing + Online Digital Numbering + Online Stacker (PRIMA-30/578 mm).
PRESSLINE India is now proud to be associated with WAEC and the council’s head and dignitaries, who have placed faith on their press, which is now successfully running to churn out examination documents of hundreds of African schools.
