The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) rejects has described the decision by the Federal Government to scrap Post-UTME as myopic and irritating.
According to the group, it is JAMB itself that should have been abolished; stating that Post-UTME Was introduced due to the loss of confidence on JAMB as a result of gross corruption that bedeviled the conduct of JAMB examinations prior to the introduction of Post-UTME ranging from impersonation, swapping the candidates’ marks for the highest bidders etc.
And since it was obvious that JAMB was dumping dullards in our tertiary institutions, the schools themselves had to find a way to ensure the quality of candidates admitted. This necessitated the introduction of Post-UTME.
The group reiterated that Post-UTME is in line with the change mantra of the current administration since the basis for its establishment was to fight corruption in the admission process and as such should not be the one to be scrapped adding that schools cannot conduct adequate screening without a written examination..
The group rather advocated that JAMB itself be scrapped as it has the lion share of the blame for the fall in the quality of education in Nigeria today.
