Federal Government To Review JAMB Admission Policy

The Federal Government may consider the review of the process of admissions into tertiary institutions conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, said there was the need to review the admission processes, in order to adequately cater for colleges of education and other tertiary institutions.
He said the Federal Government would do all it could to attract more young Nigerians into teaching profession.
The minister was responding to an earlier remark by the Provost of the Federal College of Education, Katsina, Professor M.A. Wasagu, that there had been decline in population of students at the colleges, owing to the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by JAMB.
Wasagu had noted that only the dregs of candidates who sit for UTME annually and fail to gain admission into universities were left for the colleges.
The minister, however, said a national summit on education would soon be convened to deliberate on issues affecting the education sector, in order to come up with a realistic road-map to move the sector forward.
