The Jamb registrar regretted that despite the developments, Imo State has only three universities while Ogun and Osun states had 14 and eight,
Oluyede said the state did not have sufficient number of universities to accommodate its multitudes of candidates.
The JAMB chief said the state’s free education programme might be the reason for its unbeatable record in JAMB applications in the last five years.
HE urged Okorocha to encourage the establishment of private universities in the state. Okorocha assured that the state would sustain its free education programme  at all cost. Adding that more resources would be provided for the sector.
