El-Rufai: Low Cut Off Marks Making Northern Youths Lazy
The Governor of kaduna state, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, has said that the low cut off marks needed for northern youths to gain admission into universities is making the northern youths lazy.
He made this known during the plenary session on “Rethinking Sub-National Competitiveness” at the ongoing Nigerian Economic Summit.
He opined that even though JAMB might think they are uniting the country by the reduced cut off for the region; they are actually dividing it.
The northerners are at advantage. The low JAMB cut-off mark is making northern youth lazy rather than encouraging them. Despite the advantage of the education in Nigeria, we have the highest number of children out of school.
For example, Joint Admissions Matriculation Board, (JAMB), gives different cut-off mark for different states and you say you are building a nation, no you are dividing it.
I am from the north but we have suffered educational disadvantage and the JAMB has given us lower cut-off mark to catch up, have we caught up?
It is making people lazy.Governor El-Rufai
