Senate Moves To Stop JAMB From Admitting Candidates Below 18 Years

The Senate Committee on Basic Education says it is towards amending the law establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,  (JAMB) to stop the board from admitting candidates below the age of 18  years.

This was disclosed by the Vice-Chairman of the Committee, Senator Akon  Eyakenyi, during the committee’s oversight visit to the JAMB, noting that age has a lot to do with learning ability, particularly in higher institutions as education is very important in the development of the country.

The Senator, however, described the board as a bridge between secondary and university education, stressing that the agency is a  necessary vehicle for the delivery of quality and standard education in Nigeria.
