Samuel Aruwan, the Special Assistant, Media and Publicity who announced this in a statement said;
“Dr. Shehu Usman Adamu, the commissioner of education, announced the cabinet decision that henceforth admission forms and admission processes will be free in all tertiary institutions owned by the state government. Adamu said that under no condition should scratch cards be sold to admission-seekers for access to school portals.
He explained that council is persuaded that the aspirations of young people for admission into higher institutions should not be treated as a revenue source. Adamu also conveyed the council decision that all non-teaching occupants of school quarters should vacate the premises within 90 days, while teachers transferred to other schools will have six months to give up their former quarters.
