The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has issued a note of warning to the tertiary institution not to go against the inter/intra-university advisories, adding that it would jeopardise the chances of graduates participating in National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede on Sunday tasked all institutions to adhere strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes related to admission.
According to him, the directive was necessary to avoid unnecessary bickering that could endanger the future of innocent candidates and their subsequent mobilisation for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
He explained that the transfer of candidates within institutions locally or internationally is an acceptable process as approved by the senate or council of the respective institutions, adding that due process must be followed.
He said: ”The board, as a responsible organisation and gatekeeper, would not allow the process to be circumvented to allow unqualified candidates to gain access to our institutions.
“JAMB would not be a party to any improper transfer or breach of set guidelines. Adequate measures or checks must be done to verify if such candidates meet minimum requirements or possess the prerequisite qualifications to be in the institution in the first instance.”
