”The expectation is huge and our president is committed fully towards  tackling these problems;  I enjoin every one to be part of this,” he said

Also, the Minister of State for Education, Dr Yusuf Sununu, who thanked God for the appointment, said the time is now to surmount the challenges in the sector.

Sununu said that working together as a formidable force would help to overcome the challenges.
