According to him, the screening that will be recognized is such one that involves only the verification of certificates of the candidates, JAMB scores, and any other physical examination to ensure that such candidates are not cultists. Such screening should be at no cost to the parents or students and should be done upon resumption in order to avoid unnecessary travels in search of admission.
