The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has rejected the cut-off marks for admission into tertiary institutions, describing the reduction as a gross misplacement of priority and exercise in futility.
NANS Vice President Olamide Odumosu, spoke at a protest by the group at the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Bwari, on Thursday.
Odumosu said that the reduction in the cut-off points would only lead to corruption as well as worsen the level of academic performance of students.
JAMB in conjunction with Vice Chancellors and Provosts is exploiting Nigerian students, thereby reducing the level of education in the country.
JAMB giving us 120 as a cut-off mark for Nigeria universities is a slap to our country.”
Odumosu added that the association would mobilise students across the 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to stage a protest if nothing was done to all of their plights.
