Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said that the state needs no fewer than 20 universities to take care of the teeming population of qualified JAMB applicants from the state who are yearly denied admissions because of certain unfavourable polices in Nigerian.

The governor made the disclosure while speaking with the founder of the Lord’s Chosen Church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, who paid him a courtesy visit yesterday, at the Government House, Owerri, with other leaders of the church. Muoka was in government house to inform the governor that his church has come to establish a world-class university in the state. The governor who directed that land should be allocated to the church immediately for the purpose also gave the church the sum of N10 million to enable it to clear the site.

He stated that for the seventh time, the state continues to lead in the number of JAMB applicants with wide margin. Okorocha noted that in 2018, for instance, the state topped the JAMB application chart with 92,980 applications and added that out of this number, it was unlikely that more than 5,000 of the applicantswould secure admission. The governor remarked that since 2012, the state has been recording between 131,000 and 92,000 applications in JAMB, leading in that regard.
