Some people will just allow anybody conduct this exercise, but he is here in person to ensure that the right thing is done and only those based on merit are chosen. I thank him and pray that God should give him the strength to do more."

He added that the interview conducted by the board will ensure that best hands are employed , so pupils will have quality education and be a par with their peers across the Country.
