JAMB gives conditions for absorption of Sudan returnee students into Nigerian varsities

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has rolled out modalities for the absorption of returnee students from war-torn countries into Nigerian universities.

Head, Public Affairs of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement on Wednesday night, said the modalities were follow-ups to the high-level meeting between the Federal Ministry of Education (FME), Federal Ministry of Health, JAMB, Nigeria in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), National Universities Commission (NUC), and other critical stakeholders, on the integration of returnee Nigerian students from war-torn countries into the nation’s tertiary education system.

The Registrar, JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, while presenting the modalities at a virtual meeting with Vice Chancellors of Nigerian universities and other critical stakeholders on Wednesday, 7th June 2023, said it was imperative to hold talks with the Vice Chancellors following the peculiarities of each university and the variation in the responses received from them on the matter.

The registrar pointed out that the emergency meeting was, therefore, convened to fashion out uniform standards and minimum acceptable benchmarks for the proposed absorption in line with global best practices.

He also stated that the senate of each university had the right to decide on university transfers and needed not to wait for JAMB to initiate such adding that the parley with the stakeholders was to present the modalities for critique as well as receive inputs.

Oloyede reminded the vice-chancellors to key into the earlier advisory sent to universities on the procedures for processing applications for foreign and domestic inter-university transfers.

He stated that the current advisory on the returnees does not override the earlier one rather it serves to reinforce it by strengthening the procedures for transfers.

The statement by Benjamin noted that goodwill messages were taken at the meeting from the representatives of the FME, NUC, NiDCOM and vice-chancellors, who aligned themselves with the position of JAMB and promised to support the initiative.

The JAMB spokesperson disclosed that “the latest advisory on procedures for emergency transfers of returning students was that each of them is mandated to do a retroactive registration with the FME, visit the returnee application page on Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS) as accessible from the JAMB website, where the returnee students would upload their registration slips, complete the transfer of personal data, which would include; name, National Identification Number (NIN), telephone number, active e-mail account, current university, country, city of study and programme, year and current level of study.”

According to the new procedures, “the returnee students would select their preferred university of choice, programme and upload scanned copies of their current university admission letter, transcript, data page of their international passport and a sworn affidavit confirming the genuineness of uploaded documents.

“The returnee students are directed to click SUBMIT for onward movement to their university of choice, which would receive a notification as well as an IBASS mail on the application for evaluation of the returnee’s credentials. If the returnee is found worthy of admission, a notification is sent to him/her on the status of the admission.

“Consequently, successful returnees students would be directed via email and SMS to approach any JAMB office in person to complete the inter-university transfer application.”

The registrar charged the vice-chancellors to be vigilant and thoroughly scrutinise the certificates submitted to their institutions to avoid any pitfall that could impugn their hard-earned reputation.

JAMB exam : Police nab 2 teachers, 4 students as ‘Miracle Centre’ deal backfires

Detectives attached to Airport Police Division in Benin City, Edo State, have arrested two male teachers, four students, others in connection with Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination malpractice.

It was gathered that two of the suspects ( teachers) at Salvation International Preparatory School located in Benin City, were arrested on the order of the President of the School, Evangelist ( Mrs) Olaide Toyinbo following their alleged involvement in the examination racketeering.

They were said to have influenced the enrollment of over 20 students in a “miracle centre” for JAMB examination after the duo allegedly collected huge sums of money running into thousands of naira from the students with the assurance that they will pass their examination with ease.

But this was not to be after the examination results were released with the students’ abysmal failures thereby raising dust of the unexpected from the victims who demanded refund of their money.

Sources said that the suspects have been involved in examination malpractices long before the last straw that broke the camel’s back especially with JAMB, WAEC and NECO exams against the policies of the school that had been in existence over 25 years ago.

Confirming the arrest of the suspects, the Police Public Relations Officer at the Edo State Police Command, SP Chidi Nwanbuzor, said that the suspects confessed to the crime, adding that they will be charged to court on completion of investigation as they were detained and subsequently granted bail for further investigation.

” The Police arrested some the students because I don’t do malpractices in my school and outside .The teachers are criminals and they will suffer for their evil activities”.
