The management of the University of Ilorin on Monday hailed the Federal Government’s decision to lift the ban on the conduct of post-UTME by tertiary institutions.
The institution said the decision would ensure quality in tertiary institutions’ education in the country.
The Director, Corporate Affairs of the university, Mr Kunle Akogun made this known to newsmen in Ilorin on Monday.
He said that most of the students admitted into the university without passing through the post-UTME screening did not meet the standard of the university.
“You know our style here; we have a very strict dressing code and a high moral standard.
“Because of that most of the students that entered through post-UTME had adapted to our style here.
“But those who did not pass through the post-UTME screening were very raw because there was no proper screening.
“If they had passed through post-UTME screening, we would have given them instructions on how to dress and our dos and don’ts,” he said.
Akogun said that the revival of the post-UTME was a welcome development as it would help the institution to continue to maintain standard.
“At last we are happy that the Federal Government has reversed the order banning post-UTME,” he said.
