The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has listed the University of Ibadan (UI) among schools which violated the admission process in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The board named Adekunle Ajasin University, University of Nigeria, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Air Force Institute of Technology, Ahmadu Bello University, and Nigeria Police Academy among such schools.
In JAMB’s 2020 policy meeting document seen by Premium Times, the board said the institutions used the tricks of University Portal to admit students against the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) of Jamb.
“Any such act will henceforth be visited with appropriate sanctions and the board shall continue to protect the rights of all candidates to be given their due irrespective of their social status,” the board said.
“These tricks which are meant to usurp the rights of the candidates are improper and should be discontinued”.
“All institutions employing such tricks are putting into jeopardy the future of the illegitimately favoured and less qualified candidates as the board will not condone or regularised such admissions,” the board said.
For UI, the board said a candidate, Sanni Abdul Rahman, who applied to the University of Ibadan got Economics on CAPS “but changed to Adult Education on the university portal”.
The regulatory body also complained that another candidate who applied for human nutrition and scored 242 in UTME, 72 in Post-UTME with an aggregate score of 66.25 was transferred to study agricultural extension.
“University then admitted people below her into Human Nutrition,” JAMB said.
