The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, has said it would not interfere with the list of candidates sent by institutions for the 2016 admissions, either by adding or removing names.

The Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said this in his speech delivered during the ongoing technical meeting on 2016 admissions to first choice institutions at the Bayero University Kano.

Prof. Oloyede who restated the organisation’s commitment to ensuring that admissions are concluded before or by the approved deadline of November 30, 2016, warned that no candidate’s name should emanate from any other source outside the list prepared and recommended by the tertiary institutions.

“In the discharge of this National assignment, it is important that we act with focus on what is beneficial to the largest number of Nigerians. We must avoid adding to the burden of the masses of our people who rightly yearn for higher education as a veritable means of active participation in public life”

” I assure you all that the hands of fellowship which my predecessors have extended to the institutions would be strengthened for the advancement of National goals. My immediate predecessor, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde OON in particular and his predecessors in general have lifted the Board to an enviable standard of international repute and we cannot afford to do less”
