In a press interview during the visit, the Mayor Sam Pyne generally advised the candidates to eschew any form of examination malpractices and focus on the exam since they have been taught what they were being asked to answer.

He charged the candidates to also abjure any form of destruction of school or public property after their examination since the younger generation will also use them, saying “completing SHS is not the end of your life, there is more ahead of you so be responsible in what you do and live a good life”.
