Worsening infrastructural challenge, regulatory conflict between the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) and universities, inadequate teaching aids and unavailability of adequate manpower, among others, would join forces to deny over 143, 000 applicants placement in eight universities in the ongoing 2017/2018 academic session.

The scenario, which could get worse, is a confirmation of the fears raised last week by the National Universities Commission (NUC), that an admission crisis was inevitable in the country.

Executive Secretary of the NUC, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, while appearing before the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) last Wednesday, informed that only about 30 per cent of the 1.7 million candidates who wrote the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in 2017 would be offered admission, even as he pointed out that there was a regulatory conflict between the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board and the universities offering admission to candidates.

Trouble for this class of account holders started on October 17 this year, when Justice Nnamdi Dimgba ruled on an ex-parte motion filed by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Justice Abubakar Malami.

Takam became Joshua’s 20th consecutive knockout victim in a fourth defence of his IBF belt and first of his WBA title, but the challenger stubbornly resisted the champion after being cut by the right eye in the fourth round.
