El-Rufai says equality should be encouraged among all students
In another report, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has urged the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to stop giving preferential scores to students in northern Nigeria who sit for the exam.
According to the governor, students in the north should not be given lower cut-off marks but the same cut-off marks as their counterparts from other parts of the country for them to be competitive nationally and internationally.
“The north has always been behind in education, we’ve continuously been the disadvantaged region right from independence even though we’re given preferences, JAMB scores and all that. That has not helped, in fact, it has made our people lazy."
