Varsities charging above N2000 for post-UTME to face sanction.
Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, has vowed to sanction tertiary institutions that are charging above N2,000 for the conduct of the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
A statement released by the ministry of education on Wednesday directed the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to compile the list of violators for appropriate sanctions.
The statement was signed by Priscilla Ihuoma, director, press and public relations.
“The attention of the minister has also been drawn to some of the institutions who are charging more than the stipulated N2, 000,” she said.
Ihuoma said the minister viewed it as an act of insubordination and that every institution that violated the directive would be made to face disciplinary action.
She said the minister directed such institutions to refund to the students immediately.
Ihuoma further said the minister did not direct institutions to halt the conduct of the post-UTME.
“The attention of the Minister of Education has been drawn to a news report in the media claiming that the minister had issued a directive to universities to cancel the Post-UTME examinations already scheduled.
“The statement, according to the report, was issued by Mr. Ben Goong, Deputy Director of Press.
“The Ministry would like to assert emphatically that the report is completely false and without foundation; Minister therefore urges universities to go ahead with their Post-UTME arrangements as earlier planned.
“Mr. Goong, who purportedly issued the statement, ceased to be a staff of the Ministry since November 2016.
“The ministry also urges the media to always endeavour to crosscheck facts with the relevant officials of the ministry before publication, particularly when such sensitive matters of national importance are involved.”
