The Federal Ministry of Education and other
stakeholders in the tertiary education sub-sector
have agreed on N2,500 as the fee for post-Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
screening. This is contained in a statement issued
by Prof. Michael Faborode, the Secretary-General,
Association of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian
Universities (AVCNU) on Wednesday in Abuja.
Faborode said the agreement was reached after a
deliberation of officials of the ministry, federal
universities, polytechnics and colleges of
education. The secretary-general said while it
was agreed that the post-UTME screening should
be sustained following the scrapping of the
Computer Based Test (CBT).
“From the statement made by the Permanent
Secretary, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan at the
meeting, there is no objection to screening by
universities as long as it is not another CBT.
“She agreed that universities should advertise and
the maximum fee that should be charged for the
screening should be N2,500 – bank charges
inclusive.’’
According to the statement, the association will
formally convey its stance to the Minister of
Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
NAN reports that Adamu’s recent announcement
of the ban on post-UTME had raised a lot anxiety
among stakeholders.
