Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

The Senate Committee on Basic Education on Monday disclosed to the public that the committee would work towards modifying the law establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) to stop it from admitting candidates below the age of 18 years.

This information was revealed in the committee’s oversight visit to JAMB with the Senate committee vice chairman, Senator Akon Eyakenyi.

Talking based on the committee aim, Eyakenyi said that age is one of the major factor that helps in learning ability, particularly in tertiary institution.

She,however,noted that education is the key in the growth of the country stressing that the age sector should be given more attention.

“Other than that, we also intend to pass on what we have seen today to the appropriate MDAs, the Federal Ministry of Education to ensure the support that JAMB needs is given to them.”

The Senator described the JAMB as a bridge between the secondary and the university, adding that the agency was a mandatory mechanism for the delivery of quality and standard education in Nigeria.
