Senate moves to prevent JAMB from admitting candidates below 18yrs



Senate confirms Sani Adam as INEC Commissioner


The Senate Committee on Basic Education, on Monday, said it would work to amend the law that establishes Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to prevent the board from admitting candidates below 18 years of age.

This was made known by the Vice Chairman of the committee, Senator Akon Eyakenyi during the committee’s oversight visit to JAMB.

In accordance with the committee, age has a lot to do with learning ability, especially in higher institutions.

Senator Akon Eyakenyi said that education is vital in the growth of the nation, emphasising that the sector deserves to be given a lot of consideration.

Eyakenyi depicted JAMB as a bridge between the secondary and the university, stating that the agency was an essential vehicle for the delivery of quality and standard education in Nigeria.

She said, “If the products from the secondary schools are not properly catered for to be assessed before turning them into the university definitely you will have a problem.”
