A case in point was highlighted by the sponsor of the motion, Senator Nwebonyi Onyeka from Ebonyi North, of one Chinyere Ekwe admitted to study Medicine and Surgery at the university and had the admission truncated on the order of JAMB.


The Senate, after an extensive debate on the practice, therefore, resolved to investigate the allegation by referring the motion to the Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND as well as Ethics, Privileges, and Public Petitions for further legislative action.
