    I appreciate d great work my gov. is doing specially in d area of Education. Sir my only advice in regard of our Education is that the retired teachers should be replaced with qualified and competent teachers so the O’SCHOOLS project wil be successfully accomplished. TESCOM/TEPO should consider only d qualified applicants. I pray 4 more inspirations 4 your government. WELL DONE SIR
