According to him, the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, explained during the 2016 Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics, and other higher institutions in Nigeria that, ”all tertiary institutions were at liberty to conduct screening for candidates seeking admission into any school.”
