Education Minister is Wrong in Banning Post UTME Says ASUU President. The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, has stated that the quality of tertiary education in the country could improve if the institutions are allowed to regulate their students admission process.

Oguyemi, who was speaking against the backdrop of the Federal Government’s decision to come up with a uniform guideline for admission of candidates for the 2016/2017 academic session, said that such directive encroached on the autonomy of the institutions.

“I think government should give these institutions the chance to regulate themselves. They should decide for themselves, the process they dim fit to admit their students.

“The Senate of universities for example, should decide on the process they want to use in selecting candidates. We do not think it’s right for government to decide the method of screening of the candidates, indeed, we want to attain some level of sanity and quality in the system,” he said.

The ASUU boss added that government could only come into the process by putting in place the necessary guidelines as part of their oversight functions.

According to him, it may not also be easy for institutions that had already collected money for the conduct of the post-UTME or screening in whatever guise to refund such money.

He added that this was because such money could have been diverted to other purposes. (NAN)
