The federal government has lifted the ban on the post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME) being conducted by universities in the country.
Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, announced the decision in Abuja Tuesday.
While declaring open the 2017 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) policy meeting, Adamu admitted that the 2016 decision to ban the post-UTME was done in error and that he was ill advised to take that decision.
He added that corruption in the system was also responsible for the decision to ban the Post-UTME exercise.
He however directed that no institution should charge any fee above N2,000 per candidate in the exercise and warned that the processes should be corruption free.
The JAMB policy meeting opens the beginning of the 2017/2018 admission process for Nigerian universities.
