Senate wants Post-UTME scrapped
    By Boluwatife Ezekiel Olaleye
    The Senate has urged the Federal Ministry of Education to scrap post-Unified Matriculation Examination (UME) in its entirety.
    It has also urged the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to develop a strategy to ensure the efficiency and integrity in the conduct of the pre-university examination.
    The decision of the Senate, followed the adoption of a motion sponsored by Umaru Kurfi, on Tuesday.
    The Upper Chamber said the introduction of the post-UME examination has to a large extent, failed to remedy the problems associated with JAMB and as such, its continuous existence has posed more challenges for the Nigerian educational system.
