JUNIOR HIGH School (JHS) graduates in the country, who, especially the set that recently successfully completed their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), have been warned against indulging in pre-marital sex.
Issuing the strong caution, Mr. Sule Yayah, the Proprietor of Tony One Educational Complex at Manso Datano, in the Ashanti Region, said pre-marital sex can endanger the future of the young and naive graduates.
According to him, the young females JHS graduates could unknowingly become pregnant after engaging in unprotected sex, an unfortunate development that could cut short their long academic journey.
Also, the Proprietor of Tony One Educational Complex at Manso Datano, said pre-marital sex also has the potential of exposing the young girls to dangerous sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/Aids.
In an exclusive interview with THE NEW PUBLISHER, Sule Yayah charged the JHS graduates to be obedient, hard working and support their parents during their long stay at home as they wait for the BECE results.
He advised pregnant and nursing mothers, who recently wrote the BECE, not to give up in life, reminding them that they have the chance to climb high the academic ladder if they are able to pass the BECE.
“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,” the Tony One Educational Complex Proprietor pointed out.
Sule Yayah generally admonished all JHS graduates to make good use of their long stay at home even as they wait for the results of their BECE, so that they would not fall prey to bad nuts in society.
“JHS graduates should make productive use of the long period they are going to stay at home before entering Senior High School (SHS)”, the famous proprietor, said, adding that the youth are the future leaders.
He also warned the JHS graduates to refrain from negative acts such as the usage of illicit drugs, since it could adversely affect their health and prevent them from becoming influential people in the near future.
