House Of Reps Asks JAMB to Reduce Cost of Application Forms

According to James Faleke (APC, Lagos)  who proposed the motion, JAMB has become a profit making venture to the detriment of educational and social development of the country.

He reminded the members of the house that JAMB as a government agency is not set up for profit making but to promote educational development of the young citizens in pursuit of their professional careers.

At the end, the house mandated its committee on basic education to ensure compliance and report back in two weeks.

Its not a matter of reducing cost, Government should try and increase the number of University facility,Lecturers, and increase the number of Candidate gaining Admission into Universities...
