ASUU Cautions JAMB Against Exploiting Nigerians

By  | 

The Academic Staff Union of Universities ( ASUU ) has cautioned the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board ( JAMB ) to stop exploiting Nigerians in its drive to remit impressive revenues to Federal Government ’s coffers .
ASUU President , Professor Biodun Ogunyemi , who stated this in an interview in Abuja , accused JAMB of profiting from exploiting Nigerian students and their poor parents , adding that the board was charging more than what was required to conduct the examination .

JAMB had on Sunday announced that it would remit N7 .8 billion to the Federal Government as surplus generated from the conduct of its 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination ( UTME) .

Cumulatively , the board has remitted over N15 .6 billion to the Federal Government in less than two years .
Ogunyemi said by remitting N 7.8 billion to the Federal Government , as proceeds from UTME application forms in 2018, JAMB had become a revenue-generating agency.

He added that JAMB as a government agency was not set up for profit making, but to promote educational development of young Nigerians in pursuit of higher education and professional careers .
His words: “We said it last year when they said they remitted about N 5 billion, but this time around , it is remitting over N 7 billion; is JAMB now a profit making organisation? , he queried.

Ogunyemi accused the JAMB Registrar , Professor Ishaq Oloyede , of trying to use remittances as an avenue to create the impression that he was an icon of probity and integrity.
Speaking, President, National Association of Nigerian Students ( NANS ) , Danielson Bamidele , appealed to the Ministry of Education to reduce the cost of purchasing JAMB forms .

He said there was the need for JAMB to focus more in conducting a credible examination for students seeking admissions into tertiary institutions instead of the emphasis on remitting revenue to the Federal Government .
Bamidele also sought an extension of the validity of UTME results to at least three years .
Responding to ASUU ’s comments , JAMB Public Relations Officer ( PRO ) , Fabian Benjamin , said the remittance was made possible by the board ’s prudent management of resources.
