Senate considers reducing age for JAMB candidates

The Senate Committee on Basic Education on Tuesday, said it will pursue the amendment of the law establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.

This is to enable it limit the age of candidates writing the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, to 16 years and above.

Vice Chairman of the committee, Senator Akon Eyakenyi, hinted at this during the committee’s oversight visit to JAMB.

According to him, the committee had identified two major areas to be addressed in the proposed amendment for the exam body to function better.

Eyakenyi said “Our own work is that of making laws, to legislate; we have identified two major areas that we need to go into the process of amending the act establishing JAMB. That’s the area of support we will give.

“Other than that, we also intend to pass on what we have seen today to the appropriate MDAs, the Federal Ministry of Education to ensure the support that JAMB needs is given to them.”
