Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has sued the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and the University of Lagos for setting high cut-off marks for candidates seeking admission into the institution.
The SERAP is seeking to stop JAMB, UNILAG and others from what it described as “outrageous cut-off marks decisions”.
The suit number FHC/L/CS/1139/2015 filed today at the Federal High Courtby Adetokunbo Mumuni on behalf of SERAP and three applicants affected by the cut-off marks decision.
It would be recalled that JAMB had announced a reduction in its cut-off mark of 180 for students seeking admission into Nigerian universities, only to approve a 250 cut-off mark set by UNILAG.
The move caused protests from aggrieved parents who challenged the decision of the examination body on the grounds that it was improper.
