“The need for an increase in the number of CBTCs was informed by the increasing demand and also to prevent a situation where candidates have to be sent to neighboring states of Bauchi, Kaduna, Jigawa, Katsina to sit for JAMB Exams,” he said.

Malam Garba also revealed that during its sitting, the council approved the establishment of the State Council on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to fast track the spread of ICT skills to the grassroots.

“The council would be co-chaired by the commissioner of science, technology, and innovation and that of local government, while the commissioners for information, education, higher education as well as all the chairmen of the 44 local government areas in the state will serve as members,” he added.
