The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has promised not to interfere with the admission lists submitted by various institutions in the country.
Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this while speaking at the ongoing technical meeting on 2016 admissions to first choice institutions at the Bayero University Kano.
Prof Oloyede said no name would be added or removed from the list of candidates sent by institutions for the 2016 admissions.
“In the discharge of this National assignment, it is important that we act with focus on what is beneficial to the largest number of Nigerians. We must avoid adding to the burden of the masses of our people who rightly yearn for higher education as a veritable means of active participation in public life”
“I assure you all that the hands of fellowship which my predecessors have extended to the institutions would be strengthened for the advancement of National goals.
“My immediate predecessor, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde OON in particular and his predecessors in general have lifted the Board to an enviable standard of international repute and we cannot afford to do less,” he said.
The JAMB boss stressed that his agency will ensure that admissions are concluded before or by the approved deadline of November 30, 2016.
He also urged the institutions to prepare the list with all fairness.
