The statement said children of the rich also participated in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and if they do not get the required cut-off marks, they proceeded abroad to further their studies.
It noted that on return at the end of their academic pursuits, their rich parents get them integrated.
It said their less privileged counterparts who could not afford such luxury stay behind still trying to get access that might never come.
“Let institutions admit what they want according to their needs. This means that if a university wants 250 as minimum cut off marks, why not let it be and if another want less, then so be it.
“If a polytechnic like Yaba College of Technology in Lagos wants 250 students, let it admit and if Gboko Polytechnic in Benue wants less than 200 let it be.
“Institutions should be known for their individual quality and not collective standard.
“This will foster positive competition for the overall good of our tertiary institutions,’’ the statement said.
