The Principal of the Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC) in Akwa Ibom, Mrs Dasoye Opute, has urged the 274 graduating students to be good ambassadors of the school while venturing into a new era of their lives.

Opute stated this during the graduation ceremony of 2021/2022 students on Saturday in Ikot Ibio Itong, Mkpat Enin Local Government Area of the state.

She asked the graduating students to be of good character and never to forget all the societal morals, values, and respect for all, inculcated in them while in school.

“Showcase yourselves as good ambassadors of this college and never allow selfish interest to tarnish the good image and good values we have instilled in you.

“I urged you not to be afraid of becoming great because accomplishment is determined by the challenges we face,” Opute said.

Opute said that as a competitive school, the students have shown great commitment to their education, adding that their performances in their examinations were incredible.

She urged the students not to allow laziness to cripple and stop them from striving for the best as they were about venturing into institutions of higher learning, stressing that learning is a continuous process.

“The precious thing in life is to keep your minds young. So, my dear girls, I urge you to keep learning and strive for the best as you launch into a new era of your lives,” she advised.

In her remarks, the Acting Chairman of Mkpat Enin LGA, Ms. Mercy Bassey tasked the students to exhibit good behaviours wherever they are, adding that their character will act as signposts that will either make or mar the college.

Responding on behalf of the graduating students, the best graduating student, Miss Aniedi John, thanked God for excelling in her academics, even when serving as assistant senior perfect.

John advised other students to always be careful of the friends they keep around them, adding that friends can help and can also destroy at the same time.

The Senior Prefect of the college, Miss Jessica Ekwere, urged the Junior students of the college to be studious and optimistic and stay away from negative influences.
