She further revealed that presentation of the mathematical sets annually symbolizes a collective target of the Assembly and her office to seek quality education in the constituency.

“You need to build confidence in yourselves and give off your best in the exams and bring positive results on the investments made in you by your parents, also register a remarkable pass rate to show an improvement against previous years”. 

The MP reiterated government’s commitment in improving education in the country, hence the introduction of the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy to make secondary education  affordable by bridging the gap between the rich and he poor and also absorb the increasing number of students graduating.

She also cautioned the candidate to avoid any examination malpractices to prevent cancellation of their examination since their future depends on it.
