NGT48 member Kato Minami will graduate from the group.
On December 25, NGT48 held a Christmas concert at NGT48 Theater where it was announced that all Kenkyusei have been promoted to official members of the group. Kato, who was also promoted, announced her graduation during this concert.
Then on Twitter, she commented, "Today, there was an announcement that all Kenkyusei have been promoted to official members. Also, it's a private matter, but I announced my graduation. I have a dream that I want to grant in the future. I have made my resolve to do my best to take the next step to aim for that dream."
Kato will continue her activities in NGT48 until January 31. There will be both a graduation concert and a birthday celebration for her which will be scheduled later.
