Following the speech after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on the activities of the ministry, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, MacJohn Nwaobiala, said that the matter was being resolved as consultations were on to see where adjustments can be made.

Nwaobiala, urged students who made the cut-off marks to proceed to their universities of first and second choices to write the post-UTME screening test.
