Don’t charge more than N2,000 for POST-UTME, FG warns tertiary institutions

Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu

 

THE Federal Government on Tuesday warned that it would sanction any tertiary institution which charges more than N2,000 for Post-UTME.

The Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu, gave the warning at the ongoing Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Policy Meeting on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Gbongan, Osun.

Adamu said: “At the 2017 policy meeting, I endorsed that any institution which was interested in conducting any form of Post-UTME screening could do so, but that the gross charge for the screening should not be more than N2,000.

” Once again, let me caution heads of tertiary institutions that it would not be tolerated for any institution to charge any fee beyond the approved two thousand naira (N2,000).

” Firmer sanctions than those of last session shall be applied to cases of violation,” the minister said.
