    JAMB Discovers Approximately 3,000 Individuals with Falsified Academic Credentials

    Approximately 3,000 individuals were found to have falsified academic credentials by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

    The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, has discovered a discrepancy involving approximately 3,000 individuals who have falsely claimed to possess academic qualifications without ever attending any educational institution.

    The board also expressed concern over the problem of unauthorized admissions by certain institutions, which has unfortunately brought shame upon our nation.

    The Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this information in a report published in the board’s bulletin.

    As per the official report, Professor Oloyede made this disclosure during a meeting with the leadership of the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of State Universities.

    “Some ‘graduates’ had never entered the four walls of a university owing to the endemic corruption in the system but the board had documented over 3,000 of such cases.

    “Illegal admission of candidates into tertiary institutions in the country is an embarrassment and a disservice to the nation,” the bulletin read.

    The problem of unauthorized admissions has consistently been a top priority for JAMB over the years.

    The House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education, in December 2023, instructed the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to provide a comprehensive list of tertiary institutions that have engaged in irregular and unlawful admissions practices.

    Earlier, the examination body cautioned candidates against accepting admissions from institutions that do not offer full academic participation.

    In the statement titled, “Cessation of illegal/irregular admission,” The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reiterated that all applications for admission to first-degree, national diploma, national innovation diploma, and the Nigeria certificate in education programs, regardless of the mode of study (full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc.), must be processed exclusively through JAMB.
