Reps debate bill extending validity of JAMB result

House of Representatives says it is considering a bill that will allow candidates for tertiary education admission use the result earlier obtained for subsequent application.

The law is expected to change the Nigerian education consumer space, particularly because it will remove the financial burden of procuring fresh application forms during subsequent attempt.

The bill, sponsored by Hon. Tolu Sodipe, will eliminate the need for such candidates to sit for the same examinations again.

The amendment is contained in “The A Bill  for  an  Act  to  Amend  the  Joint  Admission  and  Matriculation  Board  Act;  and  for  Related  Matters”, which has just passed second reading.
