JAMB uncovers 3000 ‘fake graduates’

JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has uncovered a significant academic fraud involving 3000 fake graduates who never attended any university.

JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, revealed this alarming development in a report published in the board’s bulletin, obtained by EduCeleb.com in Abuja.

“Some ‘graduates’ had never entered the four walls of a university owing to the endemic corruption in the system, but the board had documented over 3,000 of such cases,” Oloyede stated.

Illegal Admissions a Source of Embarrassment

Oloyede also decried the issue of illegal admissions by some institutions, highlighting it as a source of embarrassment and a disservice to the nation.

He emphasized that the problem of illegal admissions has been a persistent concern for JAMB.

“Illegal admission of candidates into tertiary institutions in the country is an embarrassment and a disservice to the nation,” he added.

JAMB’s Warning to Candidates

JAMB has consistently warned candidates to avoid accepting admissions from institutions that do not adhere to proper academic procedures.

In a statement titled “Cessation of Illegal/Irregular Admission,” the board reiterated that all applications for admissions to first-degree programs, national diplomas, national innovation diplomas, and the Nigeria Certificate in Education must be processed through JAMB.

Ensuring Integrity in Admissions

The board stressed that all types of academic programs, including full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, and sandwich courses, must follow the official admission processes outlined by JAMB to ensure the legitimacy and integrity of educational qualifications.

The discovery of the fake graduates underscores the urgent need for stringent measures and oversight to combat corruption and irregularities in Nigeria’s education sector.
