Benjamin told one of the correspondents in an interview that the admission table showed that universities could admit more but could not fill the spaces because the candidates did not meet the requirements.

He said, “We just closed the 2018 admission and we discovered that those spaces or total capacity were not utilized – these were spaces available through which candidates can come in. When you look at the over one million candidates applying through JAMB, how many of them are even qualified?
“It is just like you say you want to employ 10 medical doctors and you have 1,000 applications. Out of the 1,000 applications, 999 were people who read History, Mathematics and Chemistry. So, that is not a case of no jobs, but not meeting the requirements.”
