regulatory body on Friday in Abuja.
JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, stated that the
admission board and NUC were two agencies of government
that occupied a critical position in admission and regulations of
tertiary institutions in Nigeria, hence the need for
collaboration to achieve a stronger tertiary education system.
On his part, the Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor
