Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, the Vice- Chancellor,(V-C) University of Ilorin, (Unilorin) in Kwara, on Monday said that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had increased the university’s admission quota from 7,800 to 9,000.

Ambali who disclosed this during an interactive session with newsmen in Ilorin said that the development had afforded the institution to increase its students’ intake.

The V-C also said that the university management had acquired additional laboratory equipment that would ensure an enabling learning condition for its students.

“We are looking forward in 2016 to re-emphasise and concentrate our efforts to sustain the feats the university had achieved in the previous years as the best,” he said.

Ambali, however, dismissed the agitation from some quarters of passing into law the “banking of JAMB results”.

This would afford a candidate the opportunity to use the same result obtained at one sitting of JAMB’s entrance examination to seek admission into the university for two years instead of writing it annually.

The V-C said that candidates re-writing examinations annually would perform better than they had done in previous ones.
Ambali also said that investors were already on ground to build additional a 5,000-bed-space hostel for the institution.

He said that this would assist the university to achieve its vision of providing hostel accommodations for thousands of its students currently living outside the campus.
