No written post-UTME for universities – JAMB

on

The Registrar and Chief Executive of the Joint
Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq
Oloyede, on Friday dismissed the speculation of a
stalemate in the admission of fresh students into
universities across the country.
Oloyede, who spoke during an interview with
journalists shortly after a visit to the zonal office
of the board in Benin, the Edo State capital,
insisted that all universities have been barred
from conducting written examinations before
admitting students.
He also denied the alleged imposition of
prospective students on universities, adding that
issues over the admission of fresh students into
tertiary institutions had been resolved after due
consultations with all stakeholders.
Oloyede said: “I know many of you are bothered
and you want to hear from me about the
admission.
“There is no stalemate.

“After due consultation with the Senate, House of
Representatives, because we have been invited
and they are worried, and after due consultation
with all the regulatory agencies: National Board
for Technical Education, National Commission for
Colleges of Education, National Universities
Commission and Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board itself, we have resolved the
matter totally.
“There is no ambiguity of what will happen.
“As it has been announced by the Minister for
Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu, there will be no
written examination, no written Post-UTME
examination by any institution.”
The former Vice-Chancellor of the University of
Ilorin, Kwara State, however, noted that the
managements of the universities were free to
determine their respective admission policies in
line with the directive of the Federal Executive
Council.
Oloyede, who is also the Secretary-General of the
Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, said:
“Every other thing remains as it used to be
because the authority, autonomy and
independence of the academic boards of the
Senate of the respective institutions remain
sacrosanct.”
