ASUU Calls For JAMB Registrar’s Resignation

Following alleged lopsidedness in the on-going registration of
candidates by Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, 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
Dr Omole said the board 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 underscored
the point of alleged incompetence of the Registrar, noting that if
candidates could not do mock how sure are they to pass the examination.

said: “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? We have made case
for the scrapping of this body because in the present instance the
introduction of different registration procedures has turned candidates
to victims of fraud.”while different centres now make business by
arranging with private schools who bring all their students in group to
come and register while children of the masses look on.”

“This is
a failed approach to change and the Registrar admitted this with the
cancellation of the mock examination. 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”

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.
