JAMB Denies Introducing Points System Option For Screening by Godzlove8(m): 8:58pm On Jul 08, 2016
Says institutions must only comply to existing three admission pillars
Contrary to media reports that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has imposed the Point System Option (PSO) on higher institutions as the new admission guidelines for 2016 admission processes, the examination body has distanced itself from such report, describing it as a figment of the imagination of its proponents. Speaking exclusively with Saturday Telegraph yesterday, the Head of JAMB’s Media and Information Unit, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the examination body at no point made such a recommendation.

He noted that a section of the media had only scooped the information from a presentation to some education stakeholders by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, which was posted on the examination body’s website.

This is even as he added that as against the report, JAMB would no longer issue any admission letter to any candidate but would ensure that the three admission pillars of Merit,Catchment Area and the Education Disadvantaged Areas must be observed by all the higher institutions across the country.

He said: “It is irresponsible for any media to have credited any information that did not emanate from JAMB to us. JAMB did not create any new admission guidelines. Some people just went to our website to pick a document which was presented to a session of stakeholders comparing various admission systems by different institutions. “No university or polytechnic is instructed by JAMB to adopt such a policy. In fact, we won’t issue admission letter any longer as the Minister has mandated us.

What we are to do is to provide admission list and album to the institutions and ensure that the 45 per cent for merit; 35 per cent for catchment area and the 20 per cent for education disadvantaged areas, are observed to the letter. The universities are to issue admission letters individually.”

Since this lying party started the activity of circulating fake news/propaganda to oust the previous govt the Nigerian news space has been polluted and inundated with fake news creators and unprofessional journalists who circulate them without verification. A very bad situation for the country.

We now don't know a news is true or not
