Dosara noted that establishment of the board became necessary to address challenges facing the state as regards to payment of Senior Secondary School Examinations (SSCE).

“It is very unfortunate that the state was owing examination bodies millions of naira.

“As representatives of people, we cannot allow our children to continue experiencing difficulties in writing final year examinations.

“As I am speaking now, examination bodies still holding results of our children who graduated from secondary schools in the past two or three years”, House Leader added.
