Let me sincerely applaud the Japanese counterpart for the job well done,give credit were it is due because the health sector, in our country which is under developed it needs technical assistance from the G8 countries,even the education sector too,imagine when the SSCAR program was implemented apt now other subjects in the senior section is enduring a lot of problems,no textbooks of the so called new curriculum have procured,CDSSs are the most uderpriviledged ,so how can quality education be improved,so it needs a lot be desired.
