JAMB boss Oloyede warns tertiary institutions over matriculation and accreditation issues

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has expressed concern over some tertiary institutions that are issuing certificates and graduating students who were never matriculated. The registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said this during a meeting with regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions from the North and Southern regions at JAMB headquarters, Bwari, FCT Abuja on Monday.

Oloyede said that some of the affected institutions have failed to matriculate any student in the last five years, which is a violation of the law and the board’s regulations. He said that the board has the mandate to monitor the admission and matriculation of students into tertiary institutions, and that any institution that fails to comply with the rules will face sanctions.

He also said that the board has automated its communication with the institutions and their regulatory agencies through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS), which will take effect from January 1, 2023. He said that IBASS will ensure seamless communication between JAMB, institutions and their regulatory agencies without using letter writing as the practice has been.

He said that IBASS will provide personalised services to the institutions and agencies, and that only JAMB and the institution will be able to see any communication on the platform. He said that the board will only receive letters from institutions or agencies through IBASS, and that any letter sent through other means will not be attended to.


He further said that the board has introduced various measures to ensure the integrity and credibility of its examinations, such as biometric verification, facial recognition, and CCTV monitoring. He said that the board will not tolerate any form of examination malpractice or irregularity, and that any candidate or centre found culpable will be penalised.

He urged the institutions and the regulatory agencies to cooperate with the board in ensuring the quality and standard of education in the country. He also commended the efforts of the National Universities Commission (NUC), the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) in regulating and accrediting the programmes offered by the institutions.

He said that the board will continue to work with the stakeholders to improve the admission and matriculation process, and to ensure that only qualified and deserving candidates are admitted into the tertiary institutions.
