JAMB partners EFCC on fight against exams malpractices

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has vowed to work with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to tackle exams malpractices in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

It also stated that over 1.4 million candidates have so far registered for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) across the country.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this yesterday while receiving the acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
According to Oloyede, “A total of 1,451,691 candidates had registered for the 2018 UTME, while 39,663 candidates were for the Direct Entry.

“However, we currently have in our custody some people who break into our Virtual Private Network. They are creating very-small-aperture terminal in Osogbo and Ilesha, Osun State, and broadcasting across the country.

“These people are young boys and girls. They are only concerned about the money they get and not about the effects of their corrupt practices.

“We would cooperate with the EFCC in fighting corruption in the form of examination malpractices.”

On his part, Magu assured the Registra that the commission would not spare any vice-chancellor found culpable in the investigations into alleged N5.77million furniture allowance.

“We can cooperate with JAMB to fight corruption in many areas including the issue of examination malpractices. This is part of the reasons for this visit.

“It is too early for me to comment on this issue (whether we are beaming our searchlight on past JAMB registrars). But we are working on it. On the vice-chancellors, we will not spare anybody,” he vowed.
