The Presidency has asked the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) to de-list all the programmes being run by specialized universities which are in conflict with their mandate.
JAMB named the affected universities as the universities of agriculture, universities of technology, and university of medicine.
Education minister, Mallam Adamu Adamu had directed JAMB to de-list programmes being run by specialized universities which have no bearing to their names and foundation from its portal.
The minister asked specialized universities to restrict themselves to the core programme for which they were set up.
For instance, JAMB in a statement said it is wrong for a university of agriculture to run programmes in law and management courses, such as accounting, banking and finance as well as business administration.
JAMB also faulted others who changed the nomenclature of some of their courses to read for instance banking engineering and accounting technology.
