Amanda Pam, Secretary, Health and Human Services Secretariat in FCTA, on Wednesday said there would not be preferential treatment for any candidate during the forthcoming FCT School of Nursing entrance examination.
Pam said this when the Kogi State Governor’s Wife, Hajia Rashidat Bello, paid her an advocacy visit on girl child education in Abuja on Wednesday.
According to her, there is always transparency in admitting students as well as running the school activities since it is owned by the Federal Capital Territory Administration.
She pledged her commitment to providing a fair playing ground for all candidates who met the entry requirements.
She said: “We will give more attention to the catchment areas which are Kogi, Niger and Nasarawa states.
“We will be fair to the candidates who have applied so that we can meet up to our requirements.
“We are always transparent in setting and marking our exams in the FCT.”
Pam said that the secretariat had secured approval from National Council of Nursing to increase the admission from 50 to 100 students.
On her part, Bello said that her visit to the FCT health secretary was to solicit for her help in the area of giving more opportunities to indigent female candidates from the state.
The wife of the Kogi governor said that she was committed to empowering the less privileged girls in the state, particularly on education.
She appealed to the FCT administration to always evolve measures that would assist Kogi State to boost its scheme for girl child education.
