Stop admission of underaged persons – JAMB warns universities

Prof ISHAQ OLOYEDE, Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has warned tertiary institutions, especially universities, to stop admission of under aged persons, describing the development as “illegal”.


He said that illegal admission, such as admitting under aged, should be stopped.


OLOYEDE made the assertion at the opening of the seventh biennial conference of Committee of Pro-Chancellors of State-Owned Universities in Nigeria today, in Lagos.


He said that for the sake of accountability, data protection and integrity of the nation, this act needed to stop because anything that was irregular was illegal.


Prof IBRAHIM GAMBARI, former Chief of Staff to the President urged the pro-chancellors to make plan of action on how they could make their institutions as competent and attractive as federal and private universities.


GAMBARI said that by so doing, it ensured that they were able to retain some of the best faculty and staff which attracted the best in the pool of eligible students.
