“We have a policy. Once names are selected, we do a background check and the individual is qualified, we move into action. Secondly, in secondary school, we organize competitions, and if an individual qualifies then we select the person. But it must be on merit.
Some people are naturally brilliant and when you come across them, you have no choice but to move in. After people are selected, I go through it, and if my instinct.
