The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has issued a warning to universities purportedly involved in conducting  illegitimate admissions .

In a statement by the Head of Public Affairs and Protocols of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, the board Says, these universities have been reported to be issuing admission letters to candidates without recourse to the JAMB.

The statement says such admissions that have not been proposed, approved nor accepted on the Central Admissions Processing System, CAPS, are null and void, and as such, asking helpless innocent candidates to pay acceptance fees for such admissions, amounted to illegality.

JAMB added that such admissions are unacceptable and offensive to the extant rules and regulations guiding the admissions to the tertiary institutions in Nigeria, as approved by the Federal Ministry of Education and provided on CAPS.

JAMB noted that it instituted CAPS in 2017, as an automated platform designed to ensure that admissions are transparently done, to protect the interest of all Nigerians desirous of tertiary education.

JAMB further advised all candidates not to accept any admission not provisioned on CAPS and by implication, any candidate who has not accepted and printed his or her admissions letter on CAPS, should not pay any acceptance fee, as any admission done outside CAPS, is illegitimate and would not be approved by the Board.

JAMB further said that admission guidelines stipulated that institutions are to recommend qualified candidates through CAPS in accordance with laid-down criteria, to the Board for approval and as such, admission not approved by the Board is an exercise in futility.

It warned that any institution violating this well-intentioned guidelines, has much to hide and advised Candidates that in their own interest, not to accept such admissions done outside the purview of JAMB nor pay any acceptance fee as such admissions will never be allowed to stand.
