“I want to say we are satisfied with the conduct of today’s examination. It is to test run our facilities in the various accredited centres. The positive feelers we got from centres are beyond our expectations.
“I monitored the examination in Abuja and with reports we got from the field across the country showed that everything went on seamlessly.
“However, we are not taking the success recorded in today’s examination for granted because most of these centres operated below capacity. We will not leave any stone unturned to ensure that we get maximum result during our main examination scheduled for May.
