The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has advised the elite to stop sending their children abroad for the first degree education.
Oloyede, who noted that private universities must be “realistic by considering the economic situation in the country,” said some private universities in the country were set up to make money.
The registrar said this on Thursday night in Abuja, during a training and sensitisation for admission officers and stakeholders from universities. Oloyede added that the board would no longer consider students admitted by universities, who did not have the Ordinary Level and the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination requirements.
Oloyede added that the board had also introduced the Central Admissions Processing System to ensure “transparency and tracking” of the admissions carried out by the universities.
