The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will soon upload on its website, names of candidates who have been offered admission into tertiary institutions.


Fabian Benjamin, head, media and information of JAMB, made the disclosure while speaking with NAN on Friday in Lagos.

According to Benjamin, the board will ensure that students are not unjustly denied admission in any institution of their choice.

He said that the names of candidates who had satisfactorily met the admission rules and regulations of the institutions and that of the federal government would be uploaded soon.


“We have just concluded a five-day technical committee meeting on admission that started on August 22 at the Bayero University Kano,” he said.

“A lot was deliberated upon and at the end everything came out successful.

“We have ensured that the admissions are done in line with the set rules and regulations as provided by the federal government and the various institutions.


“We are aware that the function of admission of candidates is solely the job of the senates of institutions and what we do as a board is to see the guidelines used in admitting the candidates and ensure ratification.

“We are passionate about ensuring that no candidate that meets any of the admission rules and guidelines as provided by both the institution and government is denied admission for whatever reason.”

At the opening of the meeting, Ishaq Oloyede, a professor and registrar of the board, had said that admissions would be carried out based on guidelines approved for each institution by their respective proprietors.

He also said that preference expressed for the institutions and courses by the candidates would be followed.


Oloyede added that the admission of candidates into the respective first-choice institutions would be smooth.
