JAMB to sanction universities over illegal admissions

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it will sanction universities offering admission to Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates on their own portals without abiding by the Central Admissions Processing System.

The board also warned candidates not to accept any offer of admission that is not validated on their profile page with JAMB or offered through the CAPS, adding that such admission offers were illegal and would not be recognised.

JAMB on Monday disclosed this in its weekly bulletin, saying that the intention of the universities was to “lure innocent and more qualified candidates from their preferred programmes so that they could accept other programmes.”

The board noted that the universities had been advised to promptly withdraw and desist from such illegitimate actions.

Although JAMB did not disclose the names of three universities, it put a photograph of the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, in the warning. Punch
