We write to bring to your notice that your recently released cut –off mark for the 36 states of the Federation for admission into the 104 Federal Government Colleges where a State like Zamfara has as little as 2 as cut off points while Anambra has 139 as cut off points violates S 42 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which forbids executive or administrative actions which discriminates on account of ethnic group, place of origin etc.
The implication of this policy is that an Igbo boy or girl from Anambra State or a Yoruba boy or girl from Lagos State with a higher cut-off point can be denied admission into the unity schools irrespective of his/her high score and on account of his/her state of origin. And a Hausa boy or girl from Zamfara state or an Ijaw boy or girl from Bayelsa state with a lower cut-off point will be given preference in admission irrespective of his/her low score and on account of his/her state of origin.
It may be that you are unaware of the provisions of S 42 of the Constitution which is why we are giving this notice.
However, if after this notice, the list is not withdrawn, we will initiate legal proceedings to compel withdrawal of the list.
