Persons including military persons and a doctor identified in connection with plans to cause destabilization at Presidency have been arrested and arraigned before a District Court in Accra.

Rising issues from this development will headline discussions in today’s edition of Newsfile on Joynews.

Other topics including the mass failure of law school students and the aftermath of the Ayawaso West Wuogon commission’s report and government’s white paper will also be discussed.

Over 90 per cent of students who sat for this year’s Ghana School of Law entrance examination failed to make the cut for admission.

Results showed that of the 1,820 candidates who sat for the entrance exams, only 128, representing 7 per cent passed.

The mass failure comes on the back of a similar failure in the Ghana Bar exams few months ago. More than 90 per cent of the 727 students who wrote that exams failed, sparking agitation amongst the students.
Also, government, in its White Paper, rejected portions of the AWW report produced by the Emile Short Commission set up by government to look into some violence that occurred during the polls.
