We Have Zero Tolerance For Impersonation, Malpractice– JAMB Registrar

Prof Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Wednesday, said the series of measures introduced to curb impersonation and examination malpractices had started yielding positive results

Mr Oloyede made the assertion in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, while delivering the 10th Annual lecture of the Forum of Heads of Federal Government Establishments In Nigeria, (Ekiti State chapter).

The topic of his lecture was “Value Reorientation For Effective Service Delivery : JAMB Perspectives”

Oloyede said some of the digital based reform measures were tailored toward the sustenance of the board’s zero tolerance to impersonation, malpractices and other forms of illegality and irregularities.

According to him, such measures as the inclusion of the National Identify Number (NIN), the live monitoring of examination registration as well as the adoption of Central Processing System in admission placements were part of this reform process.

He also blamed various cases of fraudulent practices in schools, especially during external examinations, on too much emphasis on paper qualifications by authorities when engaging people for employment.
