JAMB, NUC Agree To Resolve Admission Challenges In Nigeria’s Institutions

​The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Universities Commission (NUC) have met and agreed to work in cohesion for the purpose of resolving some obvious challenges in the admission processes into Nigeria’s tertiary institutions.

This disclosure was brought to light after the leader of the

admission board met with that of the apex universities

regulatory body on Friday in Abuja.
JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, stated that the

admission board and NUC were two agencies of government

that occupied a critical position in admission and regulations of

tertiary institutions in Nigeria, hence the need for

collaboration to achieve a stronger tertiary education system.
On his part, the Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor

Abubakar Rasheed, who led some management staff of the

Commission on familiarisation visit, averred that the essence of

the visit was to strengthen the existing ties in order to

improve the quality of intakes in tertiary institutions.
He said: “We have agreed to work together to resolve the problems that are affecting the smooth running of admissions into tertiary institutions. We are working for a common goal and that is to improve the education sector in Nigeria.”

Oloyede and Rasheed exchanged congratulatory messages on their recent appointments, promising to use their wealth of experience to support the Ministers of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu and Prof. Anthony Anwukah, in their quest to revamp the education system in Nigeria.
