It would be recalled, the Minister of Education, in a statement, last week, stressed on the cancellation of post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) conducted by universities as entry requirement for undergraduate degree programmes.

He said: “The ban is with immediate effect and under no circumstance should any institution violate the directive. Those who have already advertised for the conduct of the Post-UTME under any guise should stop the exercise immediately.

“If any tertiary institution has already conducted Post-UTME, such an exercise stands annulled and money taken from candidates must be refunded immediately.”
