Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has vehemently made a request to universities in the country and other relevant bodies to drop the idea of making English language and mathematics compulsory for admissions into higher institutions.
According to a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor averred that making these two subjects compulsory for admissions had frustrated many brilliant students who for some reasons could not pass any of the two subjects, in their bid for higher education.
Okorocha, who said this when the Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the National Examination Council, (NECO), Prof. Abdulrashid Garba visited him at the Government House Owerri, with his team, stressed that the time has come for all the concerned bodies in the country to help our education and also help students with the ambition of pursuing higher education, by dropping the demand that a child must credit English and mathematics to gain admission.
