JAMB To Prosecute Violators Of Admission Process

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that it will partner with security agencies to prosecute any candidate or institution, found violating its admission’s code of operations.

JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, was quoted as saying that measures were being put in place, to curb admission infractions.

He said, “The board, with zero tolerance for corrupt acts, will not fold its arms and allow unscrupulous elements to drag it back.

“For the gains of CAPS’ initiative not to be eroded and to ensure that there are consequences for flouting government’s directive on complying with the process, the board has concluded all arrangements with relevant security agencies.

“These agencies are ready to prosecute any stakeholder, candidate or admissions officers found wanting.”

The registrar also added that admission based on merit is not negotiable as high-scoring should be admitted first.
