The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has said that desperate ad-hoc staff connive with people to “plan armed robbery attack” in order to access its questions.
The Registrar said this while addressing people of the press at Akanu-Ibiam International Airport, Enugu on Wednesday 23rd June 2021 after touring the South East geo-political zone to monitor the on-going JAMB examination.
Prof. Oloyede said that despite the strategic measures the JAMB put in place to checkmate exam cheats, some “people still think they are clever” and could manipulate the situation.
He insisted that the Board was up to the task of exposing and arresting the culprits who must face the music.
He also explained that the trending examination malpractice going on in the Northern part of the country is slightly different from the Southern region.
“So, you have cases where people will plan either with the connivance of our ad-hoc or full staff and say I was robbed, therefore the saver has been stolen or my saver has been substituted with plan by an unknown person.
“What we are saying is that whoever that becomes an obstacle to the performance of our duty, we will crush.”
