Sokoto purchases forms for tertiary students

14 December 2015, 09:47

Abuja - Sokoto State government has bought Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms for thousands of its students seeking admission into tertiary institutions.

It spent N44 million for the 8 000 students.

Malam Imam Imam, government spokesperson, said the administration would take over the four Computer Based Examination Centres (CBT) under construction by the Federal Government through the defunct Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) intervention programme.

The centres, located in Sokoto, Gwadabawa, Wamakko and Tambuwal local government areas, will have a combined capacity of 1 400 computers.

“They will be put to use during the 2016 nationwide JAMB examination,” Imam said.

He added the state governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, had assured that his administration would continue to sponsor Sokoto indigenes who aimed to further their studies outside the shores of Nigeria.

“The administration will also support exceptional students and will continue to make education its number one priority,” said Imam.
