ASUU WANTS GOVERNMENT TO SCRAP JAMB
|ASUU wants Federal Govt to Scrap JAMB|
Following the reported issues on the ongoing 2017 UTME registration, the
Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) University of
Ibadan Chapter, Dr Deji Omole has called on the Registrar of JAMB,
Professor Ishaq Oloyede to voluntarily resign from office.
The academic union also asked the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu
Adamu to call the registrar to order to lessen the difficulty being
experienced by the candidates.
According to Dr Omole, JAMB had outlived its usefulness and the best
thing is to scrap it and allow universities design their standard
examination for their own candidates.
He noted that the fact that a mock examination was stopped due to logistic reasons points to incompetence of the JAMB Registrar.
“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?”
“Why would somebody introduce changes that are only known by members of the board?” .
“How can we ensure that the candidates prepare well for the exams when
they spend weeks waiting for Personal Identification Number and are at
the mercy of registration officers who force them to go to cybercafe
where they have arrangements to first create their profile before they
can have their PIN?” He queried.
