The UI VC decried the policy of JAMB which stopped
universities from conducting Post – Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination (Post UTME) which he said
had over the years improved the quality of students being
admitted into the University.
“May be up to 2003 or 2004, quite a large army of
students were being asked to withdraw at the end of
(their) first year on account of poor academic
performance. We have statistics to back it up and it was
a national problem,” Prof. Olayinka said.
But with the conduct of Post UTME, the University had
continued to admit the best students Nigerian secondary
schools had got to produce as he said “we recorded our
best (result) last year when 1.9 percent (of matriculants)
were asked to withdraw”.
On the next of students to be admitted, the Vice
Chancellor said, “left to me, they should not be more than
3, 500” as he consider primarily hostel accommodation in
the University should could not cater for more than 8, 300
students including post graduates and medical students
