Commenting on the admission statistics for 2019, Oloyede said that 612,557 candidates were offered admission but 510,957 admission spaces remained unused by the institutions. He added that only 1,157,977 candidates who had the required five credit with English and mathematics, sat for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) last year.
Minister of education, Adamu Adamu on his own part said he has directed JAMB and tertiary institutions to proceed with the conduct of their 2020/2021 admissions which will commence in August.
Adamu said:
“As a major stakeholders, we must jointly come up with reactions that would realign our programmes to these new realities.
JAMB and tertiary institutions could take advantage of the current situations, consider candidates with previous years SSCE and other qualifying results to proceed on with the admission process.
Whatever arrangement that the country comes up with in the long run surely will accommodate those who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so Is worked out”.
