The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has
accused some tertiary institutions of learning in the
country of being in the habit of opting for ‘crooked
options’ by failing to disclose admission offers granted to
The PUNCH reports that JAMB had, in 2021, said it
uncovered no fewer than 706,189 undisclosed admission
offers granted to candidates by tertiary institutions.
According to the board, the admission offers granted were
done outside of the Central Admissions Processing
The board’s Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, in JAMB’s
latest bulletin made available to The PUNCH on Tuesday,
said, “It is disheartening today to still see some
institutions opting for the crooked option that lacks
transparencies or accountability through undisclosed
admission offers.”
According to the bulletin, Oloyede, who was represented
by the Osun State Coordinator of JAMB, Babatunde Jacob,
made the comment at the maiden matriculation of the
Department of Nursing Education, Obafemi Awolowo
University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
“The primary purpose of introducing the Central
Admissions Processing System in 2017 was to do away
with primordial procedures in the admission processes.
The board agreed to retroactively condone candidates
who were offered secret admission by some tertiary
institutions from 2017 to 2021 sequel to the noble
intervention of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu,”
he added.
He, therefore, urged concerned institutions to desist from
such practices and comply with the board’s directives that
all admissions must be conducted through CAPS.
