NANS Order JAMB To Immediately Reversed The New Admission Policy. The National Association Of Nigerian Students south west zone Wednesday, call on the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to immediately reversed the new admission policy (Eligibility Regulation).
The General Secretary and Public Relations Officer Zone D, Comr. Obanobi Bidemi and Comr. Olatinwo Jeremiah, who promulgate this to schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine describes this new policy as is fraudulent.
The statement reads,” Over 40 million Nigerian students at home and in diaspora want the JAMB registrar to define the word “CHOICE of INSTITUTION”. Why would I be posted to a school I never applied for? Why would I be posted to a school above my parents’/sponsors’ means.
“We saw this trend coming from last year when the myopic board reduced the options of institution of choice from six to three claiming it is to save students from the fraudulent activities of tertiary institutions in the process of admitting students.
“We call on the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to begin a probe into the accounts of the admission board, its registrar and top echeleon as it has been paid by proprietors of private tertiary institutions hence the bastardization of the admission exercise – a great semblance to the scandal that rocked the world football governing body, FIFA,” it said.
The statement also warns that the over 5 million students across the 6 states of the South West, including affected students, would be mobilised to the JAMB office if the policy was not reversed immediately.
It would be recalled that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at its 2015 Combined Policy Meeting, held on July 14, 2015 in Abuja, announced the adoption of a policy whereby candidates of universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Matriculation Examinations (UTME) are reassigned to other universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities.
In effect, only candidates whose names were forwarded to the University by JAMB are eligible for the 2015/2016 post-UTME Screening.
