On the issue of admission, the Minister warned Nigerian institutions against illegal admission. And further said that all admissions into the nation’s institutions must be processed through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).

Furthermore, on direct entry admission, it was agreed that each institution will determine the number of points required by it for direct entry admission. Nevertheless, no institution can recommend or admit any candidate with less than two points for direct entry.

In conclusion, the meeting advocated for a review of admission criteria to give 10% discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
