Scrap JAMB now, ASUU tells government

By dayan (M)April 20, 2017, 07:33:20 AM


• NUC accredits 25 programs in BUK
• NDA entrance exam to hold in Benin


Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan (UI) chapter has called on the Federal Government to scrap the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The Chairman, Dr. Deji Omole, who spoke in Ibadan yesterday said the board has outlived its usefulness and reducing the standard of offering admission to students, hence, it must be scrapped immediately to allow universities set a new standard of admission.

Omole, who bemoaned the board for the problems being encountered by candidates to register for the examination said the nation could no longer trust the future of the younger generation to a body that failed to conduct mock examination.

Omole said he had expected the Registrar of the Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede to resign after the board had disappointed the whole nation by failing to conduct a mock exam.
He said, “Since Prof Oloyede did not consider it appropriate to resign after failing the whole nation, I think the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, should not hesitate to sack him.

“Why will anybody make life difficult for candidates whose parents are struggling to live under the terrible condition the government has made them to live in? “This is where people are duping Nigerian children. This is a total failure. Students must have at least three months for registration, its procedure must be open and their options to public universities must not be limited to serve the agenda of the proprietors of private universities”, he argued.

Meanwhile, no fewer than 25 academic programmes run by Bayero University, Kano got full accreditation of the National Universities Commission (NUC). The NUC approval follows the national accreditation exercise conducted by the commission between November and December 2016 exercise.

Also, the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) will hold its entrance examination on April 22 by 9.00am at the Nigerian Air Force Primary School in Benin City, Edo State.

I don't know if I agree with this.
JAMB has been one of the few national standards institutions that have survived the test of time in Nigeria.
That universities are getting greedier shouldn't influence sound reasoning behind its existence.

Am in line with what this man said but am against srapping of JAMB, have thought it before that if JAMB is not in existence how will the universities admission process would be like. JAMB had really offered Nigeria Universities a tangible service.

As he said in his statement, the registrar is to be blame for all this mess right from the beginning, i can still remember when Dibu Ojerinde was there. Everything was according to way they planned it when are talking about exam and registration period and it was perfect. But this new man is totally weird...how will you set a month for registration after the form has been delayed for a long period of time and i know he understand the kind of traffic they are going to experience during the regjstration.

Jamb should not be scrapped but be made to be better in their service delivery. The present registrar does not know to handle jamb. He should go back to previous registrar and learn so that things shall go well with jamb... I wonder why he was appointed there first place.

ASUU is selfish and this speech is reflecting it. jamb may not be totally right but it is better than allowing the university determine all. if not for the existence of jamb someone like me might not be able to attend a federal university.
