Group condemns moves by Reps to scrap JAMB

The move by the House of Representatives for scrapping of Joint Admissions & Martriculation Board (JAMB) has been condemned by the Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria.

 

The group added that such a step would be highly retrogressive and a great set-back for Nigeria’s Education System, ROYAL NEWS reports.

 

This was contained in the Eid-el- Fitr message sent by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Abdullahi Ibrahim on Sunday.

 

The Group recalled the outstanding achievements recorded by the Examination Body in the last six years especially since the assumption of duty as JAMB Registrar – the Former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin Professor Is-haq Oloyede; pointing-out that JAMB has moved the Nation’s Education Sector forward in all ramifications.

According to him, “The adoption of mandatory CBT for examinations, enhanced integrity of JAMB Results as true capacity and capability of candidates and improvement of Nation’s quality of education as several students admitted into various Nigerian Universities since JAMB reform begun are doing well and some of them turning out to be outstanding Scholars.

“We advise honourable members of the nation’s legislature to stop politicising educational issues based on ignorance and determined attempt to compromise standards for selfish and parochial interests.

“We warn those who were in the JAMB System before and those caught by JAMB using CBT Centres for fraudulent practices who are not comfortable with the current rising profile of the Examination Body to stop peddling falsehood in-order to discredit the present leadership of the Board, such antics would always fail woefully.”

The Group however commended Professor Ishaq Oloyede – the JAMB Registrar for his accountability and transparency in leadership which has earned him National and International awards, and urged him to keep the good work.

It should be recalled that JAMB has been rated as one of the leading Federal Government Agency that remains transparent in remitting federal government revenue in billions as at when due for the past six years.
