House of Representatives was on Wednesday divided over the motion to stop the conduct of examinations of post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB, in the country’s higher institutions.
In a motion moved by Ademorin Kuye (APC-Lagos), during the plenary session, the lawmakers debated for and against the requirements of the motion.
Kuye, in the motion, had asked the house to urge all higher institutions to stop the post UTME/JAMB screening examinations.
Speaking against the motion, Samuel Chinedu (PDP-Anambra), said the post UTME/JAMB examinations complemented the actual JAMB examinations.
The house, however, resolved that the Committee on Tertiary Education and Services interface with JAMB on the conduct of the post UTME/JAMB by higher institutions
