JAMB set to litigate offenders of admission process to court

According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, the examination body states that they have decided to work with security agencies to charge any institution or candidate found breaching its admission’s code of operations to court.

The board announced this in its latest Weekly Bulletin made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.

It said that henceforth, stringent measures, including prosecution, would be taken against erring candidate or institution once a prima facie case has been established against them.

The decision, the board explained, is part of its resolution after the management meeting on the imperative of ridding the admissions process of unwholesome practices.

JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, was quoted as saying that measures were being put in place to curb admission infractions.

He said that although the Central Admissions Process System had made the admission process transparent, fair and equitable, some stakeholders were, however, working hard to circumvent the system.

“The board, with zero tolerance for corrupt acts, will not fold its arms and allow unscrupulous elements to drag it back.

“For the gains of CAPS’ initiative not to be eroded and to ensure that there are consequences for flouting government’s directive on complying with the process, the board has concluded all arrangements with relevant security agencies.

“These agencies are ready to prosecute any stakeholder, candidate or admissions officers found wanting,’’ Oloyede was quoted as saying.

He said that one of the infractions observed, especially being committed by institutions, included the total jettisoning of CAPS.

Others, he said, were high-coercing of candidates to opt for other programs, to give room for their favored but low-scoring candidates and also offline admissions.
