CAPACITY OF POLYTECHNICS AND OTHERS INCREASED DUE TO IMPROVEMENT IN ENROLMENT



JAMB board disclosed that enrolment for Colleges of Education, Polytechnics and Monotechnics and Innovative Enterprise Institutions had improved.

According to the statement, the negative preference by Nigerians over these institutions  necessitated the introduction of a unified examination.
JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement in Lagos yesterday, said the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) had expanded the carrying capacity of the institutions and addressed admission access in the country.
“Having said this, I want to say that we are worried by a recent interview granted by the Vice-Chancellor, University of Lagos, Prof. Rahmon Bello, where he allegedly blamed the Board for admission challenges in tertiary education.
“Today, we are not there yet, but the enrolment for colleges of education, polytechnics, monotechnics and Innovative Enterprise Institutions has improved.
