The statement signed by the school's NSMQ coordinator, PB Damoah, revealed that every available option will be taken to ensure that they get a fair hearing.

"We are resolute in our minds that our answer is correct, and we will rake all available steps and means, including legal, if necessary, to ensure that Prempch College and its contestants are given a fair hearing.
In instances where we have exited the competition, we have supported Primetime and the winning school and congratulated them. This is the first time we have had to engage Primetime on this level because we genuinely believe in the position we have taken," the statement read in part.
