House Rejects Bill to Amend 2013 Budget

After a long-drawn argument and series of postponements, the House of Representatives  Wednesday finally dumped the 2013 Appropriation Act Amendment Bill.

This came on the heels of a motion seeking a reversal of the discriminatory government policy on admission to Federal Government Colleges (unity schools).
The House Committee on Education has been mandated to interface with both the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Examinations Council (NECO) to review the policy to guarantee fairness and restore credibility to the system.
