Registrar of the board, professor Ishaq Oloyede said this on Monday at the second one technical committee meeting on “2016 admissions to tertiary establishments” held on the Alvan Ikoku federal university of education, Owerri.

In step with the registrar, the meeting changed into principally geared toward finding approach to the army of admission seekers who have been admitted inside the first batch. “the motive of these days’s assembly is essentially to do not forget admissions of our teeming candidates who have been now not considered at some point of the first workout. Your excellency, outstanding girls and gents, kindly recall that at the 2 (2) preceding meetings in Kano and Abuja, i said that the board could cooperate with the diverse establishments in sporting out the mandates in their respective senates and educational forums on admission matters. Therefore, the board would no longer impose candidates on them however, as a referee, could ensure that no applicant is unjustifiably denied the possibility of get right of entry to to tertiary establishments in Nigeria,” stated Oloyede in his commencing remarks.

This, he stated has already obtained the blessings of the education minister and other training stakeholders throughout the duration and breadth of the us of a. “in this admire, we must be seen in a conspicuous and verified manner that we have the hobby of the kingdom in thoughts in carrying out our statutory capabilities. I am thrilled to note that we adhered to all of the choices​reached on the 2016-policy assembly chaired with the aid of our powerful and green honorable minister of training, mallam adamu adamu,” he stated including that as “expected of any accountable organization beneath a countrywide dispensation this is uncompromisingly averse to corruption and lack of transparency, no evaluate of any policy can be selective, sectional or an beneath the table-deal.”
At the arguable minimal cut-off mark for admission into tertiary organization, oloyede stated time had come to study same; noting that uniformity throughout board ought to no longer be endorsed, arguing that for the reason that various establishments award different categories of certificate; equal reduce-off mark is untenable. His words: “let me in this connection, deal with the issue of the minimal country wide cut-off mark which is usually decided at the coverage meetings.

It become at this assembly that a selection of a hundred and eighty because the 2016 country wide reduce-off mark was reached. But, many institutions, though a part of the choice, have expressed difficulty on their lack of ability to effect this cut-off mark as they're finding it hard to fill a reasonable percentage in their quota if the guideline is exactly applied ….”
For the ex-vice chancellor, university of ilorin, the lack of ability of some establishments to fill their admission quota because of the strict implementation of the one hundred eighty minimum cut-off mark is a disservice to the country’s quest for expansion of education as a device of trade and development. “as a board, we've studied the trend of admissions and feature give you a finding that rarely do the institutions together fill their quota annually. Indeed, in a few cases, up to 50% of accepted quota is wasted especially by using upright institutions which do not circumspect the rule of thumb. Unfortunately, a large quantity of establishments flagrantly ignored the reduce-off and plenty of different policies. But they located a manner to eventually regularize the unlawful admissions through corrupt method,” the jamb boss in addition delivered.
Reputedly to ship a warning to his workforce, oloyede said that even before he assumed obligations on the board, his predecessor had sanctioned the ones located to were complicit in shady admission practices. “rapidly before my assumption of office, twelve officers of jamb who had conspired with officers of some establishments to abuse the regularization process had been disregarded from service,” adding that jamb “has insisted on overall restoration of hundreds of thousands of naira involved within the deal.”
Jamb, he stated has collated the requests from the various senates and educational boards and feature made our pleas recognized to suitable government. The former vc additionally expressed joy within the reality that although the initiative is just a few months antique, trade is already being felt. “simply this morning we obtained a green light on flexible reduce-off mark only for institutions that have exhausted the listing of applicants with180 and above, problem, of course to a minimal suitable to jamb and meeting of different pre requisites.
Further we've got re opened the portal for exchange of institutions and courses in order that institutions and candidates can legitimately with none need for regularization, effect alternate of path at the factor of entry as opposed to countrywide youngsters carrier corps, nysc- stimulated regularization with attendant abuse. I've given a private and reputable warranty to nysc that all abuse/loopholes were blocked,” he stressed.
On the need to be provider-driven, the jamb boss mentioned that loads nevertheless need to be performed, saying lots has advanced over time; extra nevertheless need to be done. He said, “provider transport is aimed toward improving the fee of services rendered. As a board, we're reviewing the method of some of our provider delivery platforms to the public aimed toward improving our offerings to the general public consistent with global first-rate practices that will put off a number of the problems our customers undergo in getting access to our offerings.
The board has therefore created on line structures for such offerings as purchase of software documents, trade of route/organization, correction of records, and many others., adding that “the platform offers for all the services applicants might also require from the board without increasing the carrier rate. It is no longer required of any applicant to tour to bwari for any of the services. They're on-line. Help desks on line, have also been opened. The beauty of it is that heads of institutions are without delay concerned in these approaches because of the want to make certain transparency, accountability and completely eradicate abuses that had been customary inside the vintage order.”
