JAMB threatens sanctions for unauthorised admission.

This was stated in a statement posted on the board’s website.

The statement, which was obtained by our correspondent on Sunday, partly read, “In a bid to give effect to the directives of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board restated its vow not to condone any illegal admission conducted by any institution going forward, adding that candidates who accept any admission not approved on the Central Admissions Processing System would have themselves to blame while heads of institutions who flout this directive would be sanctioned.”

It added, “The era of candidates accepting illegal admissions and then mounting pressure on the board to condone the same is over as the candidate would also be treated as an accomplice to the criminal act.


“For the avoidance of doubt, all admissions to tertiary institutions must be done through the Central Admissions Processing System. Therefore, no candidate is deemed admitted until he/she has printed such an offer of admission from the CAPS platform.”

According to reports, JAMB and colleges have been at odds over admissions processes carried out outside of CAPS.

Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, the examination board’s registrar, stated that no less than 700,000 unauthorized admissions were discovered in 2021 alone.
