Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has
requested universities in the country and other institutions of higher learning to stop making credit passes in English language and Mathematics
compulsory for those seeking admission.

He lamented that the practice of making the two subjects compulsory for admissions has aborted the ambition of many brilliant students who could, for one reason or the other, not credit both subjects, to further their education.

The Governor, who spoke yesterday when the Registrar of the National Examination Council, NECO, Prof. Abdulrashid Garba visited him at the Government House Owerri, with his team, noted that the time has come for all relevant bodies to help the education sector and assist students with the ambition of pursuing higher education.

He suggested that the stakeholders can do this by
pushing for an end to the demand that a prospective student must credit English language and Mathematics to gain admission, adding that the subjects relevant to the courses the individual students want to pursue in higher institutions should rather be made mandatory.

Okorocha further opined that the rule that made it
mandatory for Nigerian students to credit English
and Mathematics before they could proceed to
higher institutions, has forced some students to
indulge in some unconventional activities to pass
them, while some of the brilliant ones who could
not make the subjects are made to remain at home.
