The Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Is-haq Oloyede, has appealed to House of Representative to study the danger in the bill before them on the extension of validity results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) to three years before any action.
Oloyede who spoke with journalists at during a convocation visit to university of Ilorin urged house of representative not agree with the decision, saying the bill should not get to point of seeking ascent of Mr President.
The JAMB registrar who described the decision as unhelpful resolution said the decision is going to do the students more harm than good psychologically, noting that there is always change in institutions’ curriculum which will eventually affect admission process as universities will not admit such applicant after curriculum change.
The JAMB register accused policy makers of not considering the nation infrastructure before copying foreign education system.
The Bill approving the amendment of the Act was passed at plenary on Thursday and the senate said that the extension was granted to reduce the financial burden of the examination on parents.
