The Brong Ahafo regional minister, Asomah-Kyeremeh, has admonished final year senior high students to eschew all forms of negative attitudes.
The minister who went on tour at some examination centres in the just ended West African Secondary School Certificate Examination yesterday [Thursday] asked the SHS graduates to exhibit good character and should not see their completion of SHS as an opportunity to engage in unacceptable behaviours.
He cautioned them against premarital sex, drug abuse and other unlawful conducts.
Mr. Asomah-Kyeremeh challenged them to continue studying hard and be encouraged to pursue higher education so they can graduate and help in shaping the nation.
Over 300,000 students from Senior High Schools across the country sat for the examination this year.
This year's number of candidates is higher than the figures registered for both the 2016 and 2017 editions of the examination. In 2017 and 2016, she said, 289,207 and 274,255 candidates respectively sat for the examination.
