What is the ra­tio­nale be­hind such pol­icy? Th­ese types of de­ci­sions should at least be taken after con­sul­ta­tions and all stake­hold­ers must be in­volved. The cries that fol­lowed the re­duc­tion of cut-off marks by JAMB clearly shows that the uni­ver­si­ties, poly­tech­nics and other stake­hold­ers have been left out of the whole thing. Nige­rian ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor has al­ways been in one cri­sis or an­other and it seems that there is no end in sight. How can a de­ci­sion like this, which will af­fect the lives of everybody, be taken uni­lat­er­ally? This de­ci­sion will surely open doors to many short and long term con­se­quences, which will not be good in the end. We only hope for the best be­cause uni­ver­si­ties and other in­sti­tu­tions can­not cope with the in­flux of stu­dents seek­ing ad­mis­sion. It will also ag­gra­vate the al­ready ex­ist­ing abuse in the sys­tem be­tween stu­dents and lec­tur­ers.
