…insists On 16 Years as requirement for admission

The Nigerian Senate has moved to clarify recent discussions regarding the minimum age requirement for admission into tertiary institutions.

The red chamber assured Nigerians that the current age requirement of 16 years has not been altered and that recent comments suggesting an increase to 18 years were personal opinions.

Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Adeyemi Adaramodu, emphasised that any changes to the age requirement would require legislative action following due process.

Adaramodu explained in an interview with journalists that comments made by the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, about increasing the minimum age limit were not legally binding but rather personal opinions.

The Minister of Education had previously hinted at plans to review and raise the minimum age for admission into tertiary institutions to 18 years.
