ASUU wants Post UTME BAck

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday condemned the Federal Government for scrapping the Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, told newsmen in Abuja, that the cancellation “portends serious danger for the quality of education in this country”.

He added that the Federal Government did not consult the union on the matter.

He said, “The cancellation of Post-UTME, to us, portends serious danger for the quality of education in this country. The argument of the federal government on the policy is unacceptable and potentially harmful to the future of Nigeria’s education system.

“We call on government to rescind its decision and convene a genuine stakeholders meeting on the issue before making any policy.”

He said since the introduction of the Post-UTME, there has been considerable improvement in the quality of students admitted into the universities as evident in the declining drop-out rate.
