  1. To God be the glory, what Wike couldn't achieve in almost a year.
    Seems the appointment of Shekarau has heralded a new dawn in our education sector.

    1. Everything Government, Government! What are they to do dear bonita? When Unions come up to make unrealistic demands. Tomorrow SSCE holders will want to be accorded the same privileges as B.Sc holders. Let's be objective and not criticise for the sake of criticising
