“Success is guaranteed when you follow virtuous living, eschew laziness and all the known vices, cultivate good study habits and make judicious use of your time.” He advised.

Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni also cautioned them to refrain from examinations malpractice as it could cost their studentship. He said “so, make it a point to sit up, be determined and focused, working on your lecture notes, private studies, and other extra-curricular activities”.
