JAMB’S HEAD OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS, FABIAN BENJAMIN, WHO STATED THIS IN A STATEMENT WARNED THAT ADMISSIONS NOT APPROVED ON ITS CAPS ARE NULL AND VOID.

WHILE NOTING THAT THE ATTENTION OF THE BOARD HAS BEEN DRAWN TO THE ILLEGITIMATE ADMISSIONS PURPORTEDLY BEING CONDUCTED BY SOME UNIVERSITIES, INCLUDING THE UNIVERSITY OF ABUJA, THE BOARD SAYS THE ADMISSIONS ARE ILLEGAL, UNACCEPTABLE, AND OFFENSIVE TO EXTANT RULES AND REGULATIONS GUIDING ADMISSIONS TO TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN NIGERIA.
