JAMB Registrar Expresses Concern Over Rampant Fake Certificates

JAMB Implements Stringent Measures to Safeguard Integrity of A’Level Certificates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed a startling discovery of 1,665 fake A’level results during the 2023 Direct Entry registration exercise.

VerseNews reports that Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar of JAMB, disclosed this during a meeting with the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students in Abuja, describing the A’level results verification regime as plagued by corruption.

Expressing grave concern over the prevalence of fake certificates, Oloyede emphasized the need to uphold the integrity of A’level certificates used for admission. Out of the 1,665 fake A’level results uncovered, 397 were from Colleges of Education, 453 were university diplomas, and the remainder were from other A’level certificates.

This revelation underscores the urgent need to implement measures to combat fraud and restore credibility to the education system.

Previously, This Online News Media understands that awarding institutions were solely responsible for screening and verifying candidates’ certificates during the Direct Entry application process.

However, shocking revelations from Bayero University, Kano, prompted JAMB to convene critical stakeholders to address the issue. As part of the measures to combat fraud, Oloyede announced the constitution of an A’level result verification task force and the creation of a common platform for verifying A’level results and certificates. This platform ensures quick verification within five minutes.

To enforce the importance of the verification process, JAMB has implemented a “No verification, No admission” policy. Fifteen institutions that have not complied with verification requests will require candidates to undergo pre-verification before completing their Direct Entry registration.

Additionally, modifications to the registration process allow candidates to register while schools verify their certificates on the back end. However, the 15 institutions that have not fully complied must pre-verify certificate holders before candidates can complete their registration.

Eegunjobi Samuel, President of the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students, commended JAMB for its efforts to restore integrity in the examination and admission processes.

He highlighted the challenges faced by students during the 2024 Direct Entry registration and requested additional registration centers to alleviate these issues.

In conclusion, JAMB’s proactive measures aim to ensure fairness and transparency in the admission process, ultimately safeguarding the integrity of Nigeria’s educational system.
