In the e-mailed statement, Oloyede also made known his plans of being determined to ensure that the end of November, 2016, warning that candidates names must not be brought out from any other source that is not the list prepared and recommended by tertiary institutions.

“As usual, the 2016 admissions, will be as smooth as ever. The only difference between this year’s admissions process and what has always been the practice, is the policy that there should be no written post-UTME test. All other processes should and will be as they have always been.

‘’The Senate or Academic Board of each institution has the prerogative of admitting candidates to their respective institutions subject, of course, only to national policies which include guidelines stipulated by the proprietors of the institutions, 60:40 (Science/Art) ratio for Conventional Universities, 80:20 (Science/Art) ratio for Non-Conventional Universities, 70:30 (Technology/Non-Technology) ratio for National Diploma Awarding Institutions, Use of 2016 JAMB UTME results printouts for all candidates who scored 180 and above, among others”, he said.
