The minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has advised the public and tertiary institutions to disregard rumours concerning the cancellation of Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
He made this known on Wednesday through a statement from the Federal Ministry of Education signed by Mrs Priscilla Ihuoma, Director, Press and Public Relations; read “The attention of the Minister of Education has been drawn to a news report in the media claiming that the minister had issued a directive to universities to cancel the Post-UTME examinations already scheduled.
The statement, according to the report, was issued by Mr. Ben Goong, Deputy Director of Press.
“The Ministry would like to assert emphatically that the report is completely false and without foundation; Minister therefore urges universities to go ahead with their Post-UTME arrangements as earlier planned.
“Mr. Goong, who purportedly issued the statement, ceased to be a staff of the Ministry since November, 2016”. The statement also directed Institutions to carry on with the conduct of the Post-UTME.
