We Reject Scrapping Of Post-jamb –MURIC by promise4040: 9:53am On Jun 03, 2016
The Federal Government yesterday scrapped the conduct of post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations for candidates seeking admission into tertiary institutions.
The Muslim Rights Concern rejects the abolition of post-JAMB. It is reactionary, myopic and irritating. It is JAMB itself that should have been abolished.
Our position is based on the bitter experiences of Nigerian youths and their parents over the years. Post-JAMB examination was introduced after the general public and tertiary institutions lost faith in the national examination body. There were allegations of bribery and corruption being rampant among staffers of JAMB who swapped candidates’ marks for the highest bidders.
There were also alleged cases of impersonation whereby parents who could afford it merely bought high scores for their children who never wrote any examination. Many brilliant candidates allegedly got low marks. Excellence was compromised on the altar of mediocrity. JAMB was ruining the future of Nigerian youths.
It was the poor performance of JAMB candidates who scored amazingly high marks but who could not justify their high scores in tertiary institutions that attracted hue and cry. They performed woefully after gaining entry into institutions and it was natural for the schools to do something about it since it was obvious that JAMB was dumping dullards in the universities and polytechnics all over the country.
It was an alarming situation. Many undergraduates could not write a single correct sentence. The quality of education in Nigeria was deteriorating. University graduates were performing woefully in job interviews and prospective employers had problems getting genuinely qualified graduates. The lion share of the blame for the fall in the quality of education in Nigeria today should go to JAMB.
Post-JAMB examinations emerged as a corollary of this ugly situation. The universities and polytechnics needed to separate the wheat from the chaff.
MURIC is not quite comfortable with government’s explanation that all tertiary institutions were at liberty to conduct screening for candidates seeking admission into any school because ordinary screening without written examinations cannot be effective enough. FG should also note that any type of screening at all must cost the institutions some money.
We call on FG to grant tertiary institutions some level of autonomy particularly in the area of admission requirements. FG should also stop JAMB from exposing the lives of teenage Nigerians to danger through its early morning examinations. It is most irrational for JAMB to slate its papers for 6.30 am in a country where insecurity is still a far cry.
Many JAMB candidates who went out to write the 6.30 am during the last exercise had ugly experiences. Many were forced to travel far distances and sleep overnight in strange and unsafe places. Two allegedly lost their lives as they were attacked by ritualists and armed robbers. One was allegedly raped by hoodlums. Another was kidnapped and the parents were made to cough out a huge amount of money. JAMB must put on a human face.
In conclusion, we submit that post-JAMB examination is part of the war against corruption. It is part of the change mantra. It has come to save Nigerian youths from the monster called JAMB. It is therefore JAMB that should be scrapped, not post-JAMB.
. Being a statement by Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the Director of Muslim Rights Concern.

Rejecting the scraping of Post UTME but clamoring for the abolishing of JAMB itself is the height of foolishness and ignorance.

Nah, you are wrong, do you think I care about Christianity? I care about how every child can have basic education not being married off at 8 to breed beggars in the streets

funny!

The petition is filled with misplaced priorities.

If we are to talk about injustice and selling of admission to less worthy candidates, these schools are to blame.

They admit 10 on merit and 80 on 'connection'.

While some salient points are made, it should be noted also that even the putme itself has many loopholes too.Cheating and buying results and admissions is peculiar to both..

As far as I'm concerned, there's rot everywhere in the educational system.. So this move really doesn't make much difference

To my own understanding I thing scraping of Post Utme is very wrong, because is it more easy for people to score 180 and above but now tell me how will this school admit them, this will give room to bribery the people that knows people will gain admission first, and those that merit it will be at home, cus they don't know anybody .
2. The schools will not be able to access the student the want to admit.

I will rather support scrapping of Jamb than post Jamb.
Post that will allow the school to admit students based on their own standard
