Oloyede also asked tertiary institutions to exclude candidates who applied through UMTE/Direct Entry from outside Nigeria but complained of the difficulties to attend screening exercise.


He said, “Candidates who sit for the UTME in foreign countries, prisons, blind and deaf candidates are to be exempted from post UTME test. The list of the respective candidates in this category would be made available to the various tertiary institutions for guidance and necessary action.
