According to him, “We are proud that one of our own has been credibly picked to head the nation’s examination body, we must support him to succeed because if he fails, it is Niger State that fails.”
The Governor then prayed to Allah to guide and direct his decisions and actions, grant him a successful tenure at NECO and in the overall best interest of the country.
