• Post-UTME Remains Canceled.

    The Nigerian Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu has reiterated that it is only the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that has the responsibility to offer admission to candidates into public tertiary institutions.

    In a press statement released by the Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations at the Federal Ministry of Education, Mr Ben Bem Goong, the ban on the Post-UTME screening by tertiary institutions in the country is with immediate effect.

    Goong said, “For the avoidance of doubt, any educational institution after secondary education is regarded as a tertiary institution. Therefore all tertiary institutions, polytechnics, Colleges of Education, universities or by whatever name it is called after secondary education must be subjected to admission through the JAMB.”

    He said at the end of probationary admission by JAMB, the candidates can be cleared (screened) for final admission.

    According to the education minister, for any institution with a shortfall in admission, such institution can revert to JAMB for supplementary admission.

    “Clearing in this case (screening) entails only the verification of certificates of the candidates, JAMB scores, and any other physical examination to ensure that such candidates are not cultists. After this, the candidates are qualified for matriculation.

    “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 Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is normally conducted by tertiary institutions for admission into universities and other higher institutions of learning in the country.
