EDUCATIONBREAKING: Senate moves to stop JAMB from admitting candidates below 18 years


The Senate Committee on Basic Education has said it would work towards amending the law establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to stop the board from admitting candidates below the age of 18 years.

This was disclosed on Monday by the Vice Chairman of the committee, Senator Akon Eyakenyi, during the committee’s oversight visit to JAMB.

According to the committee, age has a lot to do with learning ability, particularly in higher institutions.

Senator Akon Eyakenyi noted that education is very important in the development of the country stressing that the sector deserves to be given much attention.

The Senator described the JAMB as a bridge between the secondary and the university, stressing that the agency was a necessary vehicle for the delivery of quality and standard education in Nigeria.

“If the products from the secondary schools are not properly catered for to be assessed before turning them into the university definitely you will have a problem,” she said.

Why not scrap JAMB and its fraud...

I gained admission at 17 and nothing happened to me, I graduated 4 years later , so what's the big deal

Same people putting age bracket on admission would also turn around to put 28 age cap on Federal Employment and civil service

I’m in support of this.
Though some below 18 do so well but most of the ladies and some guys are always vulnerable of the rots and their immaturity always catch up with them

I think it's a welcome development. I entered at 16 and graduated at 21. Turned out great but I know many who didn't.

We were three who were the youngest in my class, one followed her older friends to do runs even though her parents are rich, the other guy dropped out in 400 level even though he was part of those topping the class.

His excuse was " I'm still very young, what will I be doing with my life if I leave here". I still don't understand the excuse and only God knows where he is now.

There are countries in the world whose education calendar is in concordance with age so by 18, you're just entering the university.

If the university entrance age is reduced, the whole age limit on job applications will be adjusted.

My thoughts sha.

Well no doubt about that, some under 18 kids might do badly when given freedom at very early stage, I behaved badly but retraced my steps too

I think rather than let kids just seat and rot at home, vocational training sponsored by the government might be introduced, or kids of certain age can be mandated to stay in school hostels monitored by school management

They don't need to sit and rot at home if the Ministry of Education is strict on entrance age into nursery schools, then primary and secondary. There should also be an age for entrance into secondary school so that if you rushed your child through Primary school, the pikin go siddon for house with you till e reach the right age.

That can work also, infact that's a better idea.. That's what they do back then, nursery schools only admit kids after reaching certain age

As they are moving for that, they should also move to put an end to age barriers when searching for a Job.
Access bank accepts 24yrs and below
Most other big companies and firms accept 26yrs and below.

This of course majorly favors those that went to school extremely early.

If not, their move is a stupid one.

That's going to be hard oo. If you get admitted at 18, judging by the strikes in Nigeria, you go graduate by 26 or 27 grin

So from 27, You go use 4 to 5 years find better job grin
Before you open eyes and close am... Pikin don full ground and you still never get any better job.
Then you become a Facebook and nairaland politician grin

And it will reduce the number of graduate and unemployed graduate every year. The more people graduate in a year, the more unemployed people are. My thought though.

While world is still celebrating a child that graduated with a physics degree at 11, with his Msc in Physics already.

What kind of humans do we elect into power in Nigeria.

They are so persistent about pushing us backward, it is beyond any rationality.
