“I would like to encourage the candidates to sit for all the examinations and work hard in faith and integrity. I would like to appeal to the candidates for South Sudan Secondary Examinations across the country to avoid examination malpractice,” Abdelbagi said as he addressed the media at Buluk Technical School in Juba.
