JAMB Warns Varsities Over Illegal Admissions | The Precision

The
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday says it will
not tolerate illegal admissions by any higher institution, warning that
students admitted illegally won’t be regularised anymore.

‎JAMB
Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, stated this at a Training and
Sensitization Forum on Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) for
admission offers, candidates and stakeholders on in Abuja. 
“We
know that we have abused the process. What we have been doing is to
send N5,000 each to JAMB in the name of regularisation without capturing
their picture, without capturing anything. You pay N5,000 and then they
are regularised.
“We
have not stopped to do backlog but from 2016 upward we will not allow
anybody to do backdoor admission. Anybody that is not properly admitted
cannot benefit from regularisation.
“You
cannot admit anybody under the table. Let us know your problem and let
us collectively solve the problem so that you do not need to do such
thing.
“We
don’t have accurate data because what we have on record is different
from real life. We cannot continue to do that. We will protest to the
whole world that we have 500 students in our institutions but in reality
they are about 1 million but 500,000 thousand have been admitted
illegally,” he said. ‎
The
board said only candidates who meet the O’ level and A’ level
requirements and other criteria set by institutions would be offered
admission in 2017/2018.‎
Prof.
Oloyede said: “Scoring higher than the cut-off mark does not guarantee
admission but makes the candidate eligible for admission consideration.
It is not UTME that qualifies the person. It is O level, A level that
qualifies a person for admission.
“That
is why you can go from here to UK, you can go to Ghana, Uganda,
Republic of Benin, nobody ask you of your UTME, they ask for your O
level because by law it is the school cert that qualifies you not JAMB,”
he said.‎
