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.

Observation
really i get worried with the manner of reasoning of this man called Akintola. He say is a Prof and i wonder how he reasons. According to him it is reactionary, myopic …. /

Yes may be reactionary , that is the essence of life change is a constant and we should not shy away when we need to react or amend as Einsten did say insanity is doing the same thing all over and expecting a change ..
In most decent societies i do not see any reason why a candidate will have to undergo the same exam type twice all in an attempt to gain admission. The only reasons adduce is the money making objective not that they do not have confidence in the process. Besides if you do you can always proffer suggestion towards improving the process rather than throwing the baby with the bath water…

On allegation of corruption etc..

I do not think it is peculiar to the Jamb or its staff. Every sector of the Nation is infected with this virus and that is not enough to call for the scrapping of Jamb. I can as well call for the disbandment if Nigeria for that same reasons as alleged ..

Conducting Exams early in the morning

Just like any inadequacies can be address so also can the timing..
But did Prof, consider the risk associated with travelling several km away from home to write post jamb, without knowing a jack within that neighbourhood unlike Jamb which you sit for in your neighbourhood. No case ..

In conclusion

Prof Ishaq Akintola kindly let the whole world know and understand the motive for this your call. Cause i do not believe religion has anything to do with this and not all Muslims are necessarily in support of this call of yours..

I smell some ulterior and mischiveous motives to the whole of this and he has to justify this using Religion to buttress his claim.

trully i wonder how this guy came about the title Prof[/b]

Rejecting the scraping of Post UTME but clamoring for the abolishing of JAMB itself is the height of foolishness and ignorance.
. how is it foolish? have u ever seen or hear the outcry of students about postume scores or system failure? but we here all this about jamb all the time. so our Muslim brothers have a point.

In the statement made by the Minister, he said even though 180 is the minimum mark, each university/poly is free to screen its candidates for admission but he was silent on the mode of screening. I am sure there are more qualified candidates (based on the cut off) than the schools can admit.

At least the PUME will be more objective than the carte blanche given to these schools by the FG.

Was it not the same JAMB that allegedly dashed some candidates 50 marks the other time that we are now relying on?
I wonder. Same Jamb filled with irregularities.
PUTME acted as a level playing ground prior to now. During this year's Jamb exercise; dummies were surprisingly awarded high scores. Jamb even added more marks to some candidates. There was also a case of awarding exactly same marks to all candidates in a center. Exactly same marks!
These kids do not know what they're in for if this implemented. I'm taken aback to see children of the poor getting elated with this policy. It'll hit them hard. Admission into professional courses will be for the elite. Jamb runs will be on the increase again. Universities will admit dummies. The poor-brilliant child will feel this. Admission race will be bloodily stiff.
These kids do not understand. They think a burden has been lifted. They do not know that a heavier burden has been added.

I cannot but agree with this post. Many so-called graduates got into higher institutions through the "magic" of JAMB. Let the universities "cross-check." That is all the man is asking for.
