The letter signed by LEDAP national coordinator, China Obiagwu read in part; it has come to our notice that some universities, polytechnics and colleges of education in Nigeria are currently selling forms for Post-UTME examinations and other screening tests for admission into the institutions.

Please take notice that there is a subsisting Judgment of the Federal High Court in suit No; FHC/ABJ/CS/979/15 between LEDAP and Joint Admission and Matriculation Board[JAMB]

The minister of education and the National Universities Commission where in the court held that only JAMB can conduct examinations and give admissions into tertiary institutions by virtue of section 5[1] [2] of the agency’s act.

Further more the court declared the post-UTME conducted by the institutions as illegal and further issued a perpetual injunction restraining them from conducting Post-UTME or any other form of examination.

Subsequently, Obiagwu held that it is a contravention of the order of court for any of the concerned institutions to continue screening tests.

We therefore demand that shop selling these forms and immediately refund all the money collected from candidates.

The organisation warned that if the erring institutions fail to comply with the court’s directive, it would file a contempt charge against them.
