CONCERNED Citizens Coalition has called on the federal government to sack the Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB,Professor Ishaq Oloyede.
It was gathered that members of the group, who were planning to take to the streets ofAbuja with placards in protest against the JAMB boss where stopped by the Police and Department of State Service,DSS.Coordinator of the coalition, Solomon Adodo, said
“The sour tinge of the shoddy, tawdry and herculean processes that characterised the conduct of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, still lingers in the minds of students, parents/guardians and relevant stakeholders.”
The poor outing by the JAMB registrar and his team gives credence to the fact that he is a round peg in a square hole.
It has become more evident that the registrar is not concerned about placing parameters for quality education via the professional conduct of UTME, he is rather concentrating on aspects of money making at the expense of Nigeria’s golden future.
“As concerned citizens, we can no longer fold our arms and watch while the very fabric of our educational system is being eaten away at the root. We have decided to call the attention of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who is a man of discipline and impeccable records.
We call on the Federal Ministry of Education not to turn the other way while JAMB and the future of our nation is being decimated.”We therefore tender our sole and singular prayer that the JAMB registrar should be sacked from office forthwith to pave way for the sanitisation of the system.
We cannot afford a repeat of this academic erosion and only the timely intervention of the ministry will save our educational system from drowning.
Please rescue JAMB from Prof. Oloyede, rescue our educational system from the fast entrenching rot.
Secure the future and development of our dear nation.
” The group accused Prof Oloyede of a multi-billion naira fraud while he was the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, which he has not sufficiently answered for.
“The integrity burden therefore hangs on his neck like a milestone in stormy waters and this explains why JAMB is sinking rapidly under his inept watch.
The anomie and chaos that presently characterises JAMB is akin to a bull in a China shop – everything seems to be falling apart.
