‘Only 28 candidates registered for common entrance exam in Zamfara’

Federal Government of Nigeria express worries about the low number of candidates seeking admission into its 104 colleges across the country, who registered for the 2018 National Common Entrance Examination.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Priscillia Ihuoma, noted that only 28 candidates from Zamfara State registered for the examination.

Pleading with state governments, heads of schools and interest groups to persuade school-age children in the areas with low registration to register for the examination, he said that a directive had been given to leave the portal open for registration until April 13.

Stakeholders meeting held recently indicated that Taraba, Kebbi and Zamfara states had the lowest number of candidates who  registered for the entrance examination. While Taraba had 95 candidates, Kebbi had 50.
