FG orders Universities  to Conduct Post-UTME  Examinations for 2017 Admission

The Federal Government has finally removed the ban on the conduct of post-Utme examinations usually conducted by Nigeria universities
for admission seekers after the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) after it was banned fee year back.This was revealed in Abuja by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, saying that Universities, Polytechnics and other institutions were free to organise post-UTME screening as a pre-condition to gaining admission into public institutions.
He explained that the Federal Government scrapped the controversial examination in order to fully understand what was going on in the institutions.
The minister added that the government was now wiser regarding the conduct of the examination.
Adamu however urged the institutions to make the fees affordable. 
“We are going to allow universities to have some choice. Universities can now decide to organise post-UTME, if they want,” he said.
“We have asked them not to impose huge financial burden on the parents. The burden should not be more than what they can bear.”
