The Social Sector Committee
in the on-going
National Conference led by Minister of Women
Affairs, Josephine Anenih, with the immediate
Minister of Education, Ruqayyatu Rufa?i as her
deputy has proposed that the JAMB UTME
be valid for two years.
According to the committee, it is not a good
that over 1.5 million candidates fight yearly
500, 000 available admission space, leaving
bulk of one million who are unable to secure
admission because of low carrying capacity of
institutions in the country.
This will be deliberated and addressed at the
the conference plenary this week
