The minister said any university director involved in illegal admissions would be prosecuted, even if the wrongdoing was only discovered after his term of office.

The meeting concluded that “each institution can set a minimum UTME score that is acceptable for admission. Likewise for direct Entry, each institution determines the number of credits required for direct entry. However, no institution can recommend or accept candidates with less than two Direct Entry points.

The meeting also decided that “no institution has the authority to recommend or accept candidates whose total score is below the minimum score proposed by the institution and approved by the policy meeting. The sum of all points used to rank candidates will be taken into account when determining the passing percentage.
