JAMB WILL SOON STOP UNDERAGE STUDENTS FROM BEEN ADMITTED
The Senate Committee on Basic Education has said it would run after correcting the law setting up the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to prevent the board from conceding students underneath the age of 18 years.
This was uncovered on Monday by the Vice Chairman of the panel, Senator Akon Eyakenyi, during the board’s oversight visit to JAMB.
As indicated by the board of trustees, age has a lot to do with learning capacity, especially in higher institutions.
Senator Akon Eyakenyi noticed that education is vital in the improvement of the nation focusing on that the area has the right to be given a lot of consideration.
The Senator depicted the JAMB as a bridge between the secondary and the university, stressing that the agency was a necessary vehicle for the delivery of quality and standard education in Nigeria.
“If the students from our secondary schools are not properly catered for to be assessed before they move into the university definitely you will have a problem,” she said.
