Faizatu Abu Safianu, one of the NSMQ contestants of St Louis SHS, was reduced to tears after her school failed to make it to the finals of the competition.
It happened at the Kumaplay auditorium at KNUST, apparently, after Achimota School were declared winners in a semi-final contest involving Wesley Girls' Senior High and St Louis SHS.
A Joy News reporter, who wanted to seek the views of Faizatu Abu Safianu after the contest, was made to wait for some time as students of St Louis gathered around the NSMQ contestant to offer words of encouragement and also urge her to stop crying.
Looking teary-eyed, Faizatu, in a brief interview with the journalist, said she put up her best performance and was hopeful the school would perform better next year.
