Mr Sule Yahaya the chief Executive officer of Tony l Group of Companies of the Ashanti region has urged the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) graduates to continue to revise their notes as they await their results.
He said continuous studies would enable them to gain a solid foundation in their next level on the academic ladder.
“Don’t say you have completed and so you loiter about aimlessly. Stay home and continue to read your books.”
Mr Sule Yahaya
(Tony l) gave the advice in an interview with the Ghana News at the end of the five-day BECE, which ended in the Amansie South District.
He cautioned the graduates to desist from all forms of social vices such as drug abuse and alcoholism and to help their parents with basic chores at home.
He entreated the students, especially the girls not to engage in premarital sex.
“If you get pregnant, at this age, it will affect your education,” she added.
Mr Yayah, proprietor of Tony One(1) Educational Complex at Manso Datano tasked JHS leavers to be obedient and also offer a helping hand to their parents in all the activities they are engaged in both domestic and commercial so that when the time comes for them to continue their education they would not be denied the needed parental support
“Leaving the JHS classroom should not be seen as the end of your education because you still have a long way to go to reach the zenith.” He continued.
Mr Yayah acknowledged that the challenges confronting the youth of today are numerous but singled out drug adduction
and fornication as the most threatening because of peer influence
He therefore appealed to the youngsters to eschew all such vices so that they can achieve their dream which is for the common goal.
The business mogul made a special appeal to parents of candidates who wrote the BECE either as pregnant or nursing mothers to ensure that they are not denied the opportunity to further their education.
