“Similarly, on September 21 or thereabout, the National Business and Technical Education Board will commence its own examination that will go on till on October 15, and immediately after that, the National Examination Council starts on November 5.
“Rather than making candidates run; particularly, when they will have to take their exams in different towns and rush to universities elsewhere for post-UTME; like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we believe we should avoid that.
