Illegal Admissions: JAMB Reads Riot Acts to Institutions, Candidates


By Tosin Omojola (newspot reporter)

Henceforth, the Joint Admissions Matriculations Board (JAMB) will not condone any illegal admissions by any tertiary institutions.

In a statement released after the 2022 Policy Meeting held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, the Board declared that instutions caught engaging in such acts, will no longer be condoned.

This, according to the Board, is to give effect to the directive of the Honourable Minister of Education, Malaam Adamu Adamu, who frowned at the deliberate failure of some institutions to adhere to admission guidelines, tasking the Board to enforce it on the institutions to do the right thing.

JAMB, in the statement, restated its vow not to condone any illegal admission conducted by any institution going forward, adding that candidates who accept any admission not approved on the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) would have themselves to blame, while Heads of institutions who flouts this directives would be sanctioned accordingly.

The statement further stated that the era of candidates accepting illegal admissions and then mounting pressure on the Board to condone same is over as the candidates would also be treated as an accomplice of the criminal act.

“For the avoidance of doubt, all admissions into Nigerian tertiary institutions must be done through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).

“Therefore, no candidate is deemed admitted until he/she has printed such offer of admission from the CAPS platform,” read the statement.
