The Vice Chancellor also called for the splitting of JAMB’s entrance examinations into three.
He advocated separate entrance examinations for those seeking admission into universities, polytechnics or colleges of education.
He made this observation yesterday while addressing leaders of the Education Writers Association of Nigeria, EWAN, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
According to him, the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, conducted by JAMB has done more harm than good to the university admission system, especially by giving candidates choices of schools and courses to make across the three tertiary education levels in the same exam and at the same time.
“That is why virtually everybody wants to go to university and no one wants to go to polytechnic or college of education again. But the truth of the matter is that university education is not meant for everybody.
“Some people are out there, who would have ordinarily preferred to study, for instance, in polytechnic where they would acquire the right skills and knowledge that would make them excel in their choice professions but because they have option of going to the university with the same exams and results, they opt for universities and in the process making admission at that level more competitive,” he explained.
Speaking further, Bello, a Professor of Chemical Engineering pointed out that using the same parameter to test and grade people who want to go to university with those for either polytechnic or college of education is illogical and therefore should be discontinued.
The vice-chancellor also called on the Federal Government to grant public universities full financial autonomy, saying such independent would enhance their services of producing globally competitive graduates, quality researches and community services.
