JAMB was set up based on the recommendations of CVC –Oloyede

Abuja, Nigeria – In a lecture honoring a retired academic, Professor Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), shed light on the history, evolution, and vital role of JAMB in the Nigerian tertiary education system.

Professor Oloyede highlighted JAMB’s establishment as a response to concerns over disparate admission procedures across institutions. The Committee of Vice Chancellors (CVC) advocated for a centralized system, leading the Federal Government to establish JAMB in 1977 as a central examination body.

JAMB’s governance structure has always reflected its connection with academia, with leading academics in leadership positions to ensure alignment with institutional interests and traditions.

Professor Oloyede emphasized that JAMB’s mandate has grown beyond conducting the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). It now oversees admissions processes collaboratively with tertiary institutions. He underscored JAMB’s role in promoting fairness and transparency by ensuring candidates are evaluated based on merit and published institutional criteria.

The lecture also addressed the importance of collaboration between JAMB and other regulatory bodies such as the National Universities Commission (NUC) to maintain the integrity of the admission process.

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