FG Insists No More Post-UTME, Directs That Money Paid By Candidates Be Refunded
The Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu, on Monday, emphasized again that tertiary institutions should stop the conduct of Post-UTME. He directed those who have already advertised the exercise under any guise to retrace their steps immediately or face appropriate sanction.
He equally directed that all tertiary institutions who before now has conduction the exercise to return the money paid by candidates as the exercise stands annulled.
The minister made this known through the Deputy Director (Press and Public Relations) in the ministry, Mr. Ben Bem Goong and instructed that that National Universities Commission and appropriate departments in the ministry communicate this directive to relevant agencies and institutions to ensure strict compliance.
According to him, the screening that will be recognized is such one that involves only the verification of certificates of the candidates, JAMB scores, and any other physical examination to ensure that such candidates are not cultists. Such screening should be at no cost to the parents or students and should be done upon resumption in order to avoid unnecessary travels in search of admission.
The minister will tomorrow meet with Vice chancellors, rectors and provosts as well as other stake holders to work out modalities for the conduct of admission screening.
