He further emphasized that this gesture signifies the government’s unwavering dedication to educational development. Yusuf pointed to other achievements in the sector over the past ten months, including:

JAMB Established Based on Committee of Vice Chancellors’ Recommendations – Oloyede

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede, recently spoke at a lecture in honor of a retiring academic. During the lecture, he shed light on JAMB’s establishment, evolution, and its role in the Nigerian tertiary education system.

Oloyede explained that JAMB’s creation stemmed from concerns about admission inconsistencies. The Committee of Vice Chancellors (CVC) advocated for a centralized system to address this. The Federal Government recognized the need for a standardized approach and established JAMB in 1977.


From the outset, JAMB’s governance structure reflected its connection to academia. Leading academics assumed leadership roles to ensure alignment with institutional interests.

Oloyede elaborated that JAMB’s mandate has broadened over time. It now oversees admissions processes in collaboration with tertiary institutions, going beyond conducting the UTME. He emphasized JAMB’s role in promoting fairness and transparency by selecting candidates based on merit and established criteria.

The cordial relationship between JAMB and regulatory bodies like the National Universities Commission (NUC) was also highlighted. This collaboration underscores the importance of maintaining admission process integrity.

Oloyede concluded by stating that JAMB will continue to adapt alongside Nigeria’s tertiary education system. It will remain a champion of service, integrity, accountability, and equitable access to education.

JAMB Registrar Oloyede Calls for Collaboration Between Federal, State Govts to Tackle Insecurity

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has called for increased cooperation between the federal and state governments in order to address the security challenges facing Nigeria.

Oloyede emphasized the need for a strong collaborative approach and a multi-level policing system that incorporates all three tiers of government to overcome the country’s multifaceted security issues.

He spoke at a Ramadan lecture organized by the lawmaker representing Oye/Ikole Federal Constituency, Akin Rotimi, in Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State. The lecture was titled: “Duties of Muslim Citizens in National Development.”

Oloyede, who was represented by the Provost of the Federal College of Education at Iwo in Osun State, Prof. Abdulrafiu Adebayo, stressed that security is a shared responsibility.

He argued that the fight against insecurity should not be solely borne by the federal government. He said that the cooperation of sub-national governments is required to establish a framework for improving Nigeria’s security architecture.

Oloyede acknowledged the limitations imposed on President Bola Tinubu by the nation’s vast size in handling every security situation. He emphasized the need for governors to develop local solutions to security concerns within their own states.


On the topic of religion’s impact on the nation, Oloyede remarked, “We are overly religious, but not very godly. We adore prayers, but we misunderstand the distinction between prayer and hard work.”

“Only when we unite and bury our ethnic animosities can we succeed. Religion might have effectively addressed our problems, but we haven’t fully utilized it,” he added.

Rotimi, the event’s organizer, urged politicians throughout the country to honor and celebrate patriotic citizens while they are still alive.

“Aare Sulaiman Ogunlayi has been a remarkable leader. I’m thrilled that we can honor him in this way today because I don’t think we should wait until our leaders pass away before we do,” he said.

“The results of our assignment from the House of Representatives, led by Speaker Tajudeen Abbas, to conduct constituency outreach and engage with our constituents, are what you’re seeing today.

“What you see me doing is a representation of what all of my colleagues are doing throughout the Easter and Ramadan holidays.

“This is part of our effort to redefine representation and ensure that we leave our mark,” Rotimi concluded.

JAMB to Punish Candidates for Disruptive Parents During Exams

ABUJA, Nigeria – The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar, Prof. Is’aq Oloyede, has issued a stern warning to parents regarding their conduct during UTME examinations.

Following a series of incidents in 2023, including a widely publicized case of alleged result forgery, Prof. Oloyede emphasized the importance of maintaining examination integrity. He maintained JAMB’s position that the 2023 forgery accusations were unfounded.

However, Prof. Oloyede did acknowledge a different challenge: disruptive parents.


“We have peculiar parents,” he remarked. “They intrude unnecessarily, want to manipulate the system, and focus solely on their child without considering others.”

He cited an instance where a technical issue caused a brief delay in one exam session. Parents insisted on postponing subsequent sessions, causing chaos and requiring security intervention.

As a result, JAMB will now hold candidates accountable for their parents’ disruptive behavior during exams.

“Whoever has a bad parent deserves to suffer the consequences of the bad behavior of the parent,” Prof. Oloyede stated. “They cannot be destroying the careers of other students because of their own emotions and indiscipline.”

JAMB will also delist any test centers that allow parents near exam areas and impose sanctions on identified disruptive parents and their children.

The focus, according to Prof. Oloyede, is to ensure a fair and secure examination environment for all students.

JAMB Warns Candidates About Profile Code Misinformation

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a warning to candidates regarding misinformation about profile codes. In a tweet, JAMB stated that “any candidate who registered for DE or UTME without reactivating the profile code is liable to get stuck in future.” This clarifies a misconception spread on social media, where some users claimed candidates could retrieve profile codes through JAMB CBT centers.

The warning comes after a tweet by Adewale Ojo (@Adewale09579970) suggested contacting a specific phone number linked to JAMB CBT centers to retrieve profile codes tied to lost phone numbers. JAMB emphasized the potential consequences of following such misleading information.

It’s important for candidates to understand that proper profile code management is crucial for future interactions with JAMB. While JAMB did not elaborate on the specific issues that could arise from not reactivating a profile code, it’s likely to cause problems during future registrations or accessing exam results.

Candidates who are unsure about their profile code status or have lost their codes should consult official JAMB resources for guidance.
