Sack JAMB Registrar Now – Coalition Tells FG

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Coalition has called on the
federal government to sack the
Registrar, Joint Admission and
Matriculation Board, JAMB,
Professor Ishaq Oloyede.
It was gathered that members
of the group, who were planning
to take to the streets of Abuja with
placards in protest against the
JAMB boss where stopped by the
Police and Department of State
Service, DSS. Coordinator of the coalition,
Solomon Adodo, said “the sour tinge
of the shoddy, tawdry and herculean
processes that characterised the
conduct of the 2017 Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination, UTME,
still lingers in the minds of students
(who sat for the examinations),
parents/guardians and relevant
“The poor outing by the JAMB
registrar and his team gives
credence to the fact that he is a
round peg in a square hole. It has
become more evident that the
registrar is not concerned about
placing parameters for quality
education via the professional
conduct of UTME, he is rather
concentrating on aspects of money
making at the expense of Nigeria’s
golden future.
“As concerned citizens, we
can no longer fold our arms and
watch while the very fabric of our educational system is being
eaten away at the root. We have
decided to call the attention
of the Minister of Education,
Adamu Adamu, who is a man of
discipline and impeccable records.
We call on the Federal Ministry of
Education not to turn the other
way while JAMB and the future of
our nation is being decimated.
“We therefore tender our sole
and singular prayer that the JAMB
registrar should be sacked from
office forthwith to pave way for
the sanitisation of the system.
We cannot afford a repeat of this
academic erosion and only the
timely intervention of the ministry
will save our educational system
from drowning. Please rescue
JAMB from Prof. Oloyede, rescue
our educational system from the
fast entrenching rot. Secure the
future and development of our
dear nation.’’
The group accused Prof Oloyede
of a multi-billion naira fraud while
he was the Vice Chancellor of the
University of Ilorin, which he has
not sufficiently answered for.
“The integrity burden
therefore hangs on his neck like
a milestone in stormy waters
and this explains why JAMB is
sinking rapidly under his inept
watch. The anomie and chaos
that presently characterises
JAMB is akin to a bull in a China
shop – everything seems to be
falling apart.’’
