Post-UTME Not Cancelled --- Adamu-Adamu.

Minister of Education.
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has urged higher institutions and the general public to disregard social media reports that he has cancelled Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME).

In a statement signed on behalf of the Minister and by the Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Priscilla Ihuoma on Wednesday in Abuja directed institutions to carry on with the conduct of the Post-UTME and warned that institutions charging above the stipulated sum of N2000 for the exercise would be sanctioned.
The statement reads.
“The attention of the Minister of Education has been drawn to a news report in the media claiming that the minister had issued a directive to universities to cancel the Post-UTME examinations already scheduled.
“The statement, according to the report, was issued by Mr. Ben Goong, Deputy Director of Press.

“The Ministry would like to assert emphatically that the report is completely false and without foundation; Minister therefore urges universities to go ahead with their Post-UTME arrangements as earlier planned as Mr. Goong, who purportedly issued the statement, ceased to be a staff of the Ministry since November, 2016.
