The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has withdrawn the list of recommended candidates for admission earlier sent to universities and other tertiary institutions.
 
JAMB explained that the decision was to ensure that the senate of universities perform their statutory responsibility of conducting the selection of candidates and referring them to it for confirmation.
 
It said the earlier list was sent to help speed up the process of admission so as to allow other tiers of institutions also conduct their admission.

As a matter of fact, the list has generated dicordant views of stakeholders who thought that JAMB was overstepping its statutory functions.

JAMB had earlier set up a new procedure for admission, which most univeristies kicked against. The examination body wanted the various tertiary institutions to admit candidates based on points scored in WASSCE, GCE and UTME.

Following the abolition of post-UTME, by Federal Government, the tertiary institutions have resolved to conduct interview, which will not be a computer based test as a requisite to admit students.
