The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said the board has not cancelled or deferred any admission to Universities, Polytechnics, or Colleges of Education as a result of the prolonged strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
This was disclosed by the Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, during the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), in Abuja, on Wednesday.
He said; “The onus of admitting students lie on the respective institutions. JAMB is a coordinating centre. JAMB cannot and will not determine how institutions calendar. You are aware that universities and special institutions are still in their 2020/2021 academic session. Some are on the 2021/2022 academic session and some are on the 2022/2023 academic session.’’
“We have three academic sessions running in universities in different parts of the country. My advice is that candidates should interact with their respective institutions to know which session is going on and contact JAMB only on
“No admission has been cancelled for any session, or for any institutions except the senate of that institution says so.
“We have all admissions for these three sessions and they have not lapsed and they will not lapse and it is now for the institutions to determine which and how to go about it.”
Oloyede advised candidates seeking admission to interact with the respective institutions to know the particular session they are running.
