Following the order given by the Federal Government to scrap the post – Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday staged a protest against the government decision.

The Union furthered that such resolution by the Federal will precipitate low standard  of education in Nigeria adding that the decision did not consider the Senate as the highest policy-making body on academic matters especially the admission of students.

The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who spoke on the issue said the government did not consult the union before taking such decision.

 “The cancellation of post-UTME to us portends a serious danger for the quality of education in this country.

“The argument of Federal Government on the policy is unacceptable and potentially harmful to the future of Nigerian’s education system. We call on the government to rescind its decision and convene a genuine stakeholders ‘ meeting on the issue before making any policy statement.”
