According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), only 400,000 out of the 1. 5 million candidates that wr0te the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will gain admission into Nigerian universities.


The National Universities Commission has reveled that only 400,000 out of the 1.5 million candidates that  sit  the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination yearly  gain admission to Nigerian universities.

The NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Julius Okojie,  said  this when  Edo State Governor  Adams Oshiomhole  visited the commission on Wednesday in Abuja.

The governor was at the NUC to collect the Certificate of Recognition for the new Edo State University, Iyanmo.

Okojie said new universities were needed to boost access to higher education while making sure that quality was not compromised.

He said,  “I am always happy when a new university comes on board; what that means is that we are expanding and we are opening up access.

“We know the number of candidates  that sit for UTME organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board every year.

“However, out of the 1.5 million candidates who take  UTME every year, we are barely able to make provision for only about 400,000 students.

“The new university will, therefore, be accessible not only to candidates  from Edo State but those from Ondo State and other states.”

According to the executive secretary, the Edo State University,  has become the 41st state university and the 142nd university in Nigeria. Products and Services:
