    Breaking: ASUU tells Federal government to scrap JAMB, JAMB registrar to resign

    The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan (UI) chapter has now called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to scrap the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

    The chairman of the union, Dr. Deji Omole, spoke in Ibadan yesterday, saying that the board (JAMB) has outlived it's usefulness and is reducing the standard of offering admission to students and that it must be scraped so as to allow Universities set a better admission standard for students.


    Do Omole also made mention the problems encountered by students while registering for the exam and said that the nation could no longer trust the future of coming generations to a board who failed to conduct mock examination (as promised).

    Omole said he had expected the Registrar of the Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede to resign after the board had disappointed the whole nation by failing to conduct a mock exam.

    He said, “Since Prof Oloyede did not consider it appropriate to resign after failing the whole nation, I think the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, should not hesitate to sack him.

    “Why will anybody make life difficult for candidates whose parents are struggling to live under the terrible condition the government has made them to live in?
     “This is where people are duping Nigerian children. This is a total failure. Students must have at least three months for registration, its procedure must be open and their options to public universities must not be limited to serve the agenda of the proprietors of private universities”, he argued.
