The Federal Government of Nigeria has on Tuesday, warn all the tertiary institutions in Nigeria not to charge more than N2,000 (Two thousand Naira) for their impending post UTME examinations.

This warning was made by the current Minister of Education, in the person of Alhaji Adamu Adamu, at the ongoing Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Policy Meeting, on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions.

According to Alhaji Adamu, "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 N2,000 (Two thousand Naira).

Firmer sanctions than those of last session shall be applied to cases of violation".

Coupled to this, the current JAMB registrar, in the person of Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, stated that the rate of malpractice in JAMB UTME examination has drastically reduced. He further highlighted, that the examination body will put more effort to continue reducing the rate of malpractice in the examination.
