At the Government Girls Secondary School, Rumuokwuta, the Principal of the School, Stella Ighenwo enjoined the pupils to read hard to pass their promotional exam. She advised the students to start now to read rather waiting till the end of the term to look for short cuts on how to pass their exams.
