He made the disclosure on Friday, September 16, in Abuja during his address at the opening of an Extra-Ordinary Technical Committee Meeting on 2016 Admissions to First Choice Institutions, reaffirming the set deadline. The meeting took place at the Baze University, Abuja.

Prof. Oloyede said that the meeting was proof that the board was finally ready to tackle legitimate requests from its stakeholders and clients in their collective quest for efficiency.

He added that the board is ready to be flexible when needed with the exemption of cases where flexibility would be perceived as unethical or inimical to the national interest.

Oloyede said:

“The First Technical Committee Meeting was held in Bayero University, Kano, from Aug. 22 to Aug.  26, where institutions were expected to make submissions for their first choice admissions to admissions’ panels at the technical sessions.

“However, some institutions informed the meeting that they were not ready to make submissions as internal processes leading to the exercise had not been completed.

“The affected institutions requested for an earlier special date than the date for the Second Technical Committee Meeting scheduled for Nov. 14 in Owerri, Imo State.”

He also revealed his expectations that the institutions represented at the meeting are prepared to present their recommended candidates to the board.

According to Oloyede, the meeting was arranged mainly for the placement of suitably qualified candidates into tertiary institutions.
