JAMB: 42 universities in trouble over post-UTME fees


Nigerian government has queried 42 universities for charging more than the N2,000 instructed by the Ministry of Education for 2017 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations conducted after Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, examinations.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, made the disclosure at a stakeholders’ meeting on the 2018 UTME in Abuja.
He said one of the vice-chancellors, who could not trace the affected candidates, was instructed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, to give the excess to a non-religious orphanage as charity.
Oloyede said, “There are 42 institutions queried by the minister for charging more than N2,000 for the post-UTME.
“The affected universities are now refunding the excess to the candidates and the candidates are reporting back to us.
“In one case where the university could not trace the affected students, the minister directed that the money should be paid to a non-religious orphanage.
“The candidates in that case could not be traced for a refund. Hence, the minister has put his feet down that all excess charges should be refunded.
“Where the universities have the list, they are paying the candidates directly.
“The purpose of this stakeholders’ meeting is to brief those officials who will be on the field for the 2018 UTME.
“We also reviewed the incidents of 2017 and welcomed recommendations from the stakeholders.”
