  1. Whether congratulatory messages or regret notices, “is your selection justifiable”?. In your heart of hearts is this selection satisfactorily? When many who scored below 300 points were being selected. It would have been better not to let HONEST Nigerians go through your rigorous on line TEST that would at the end of the day be given to those who don’t merit it in spite of so many cheat most people applied. Its unfortunate if we continue doing things abnormal like this in this country. There’s God oh!
