Speaking at the meeting, the Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, said the reason for the flexible cut-off mark is to put an end to the to the issues of those who were admitted in the first batch.
According to Prof. Ishaq, “The reason for today’s meeting is tp consider admission for those students who were not considered during the first admission exercise”
“Your Excellency, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, can you please recall or two previous meeting in Abuja and Kano, I said that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB would cooperate with the various institutions in the country in carrying out the instructions of their Senates and Academic Boards on admission matters but this does not mean that the Board would impose candidates on them but as a referee we would make sure that no student applying for admission would be unjustifiably denied”.
He said that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB will continue to be involved in admission matters, devoid of corruption in this our season of change.
