JAMB Registrar prohibits parents from coming to UTME centers with their wards

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has prohibited parents from coming to the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) centers with their wards.

According to Punch, Registrar of The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Prof. Is’haq Oloyede was quoted in a statement ordering CBT Centres not to allow parents and guardians to come close to UTME venues.

The JAMB registrar was reported to have announced while inspecting some of the registration centers in Kwara state.

According to the report, “The registrar said it has been discovered that the parents/guardians are always a distraction to both candidates and the centers and at the same time, congesting the halls by not following the COVID — 19 protocols.

“Oloyede also advised parents/guardians to stop pushing the education of their wards faster than necessary.

“For example, a 14 or 15-year-old is not matured enough to undergo the process of registration and university pressure and are vulnerable to exploitation by scammers out there.”

Oloyede also notified the state’s Ministries of Education and other related stakeholders who have the responsibility of registration of students into secondary schools to guarantee the students’ true age before acceptance into secondary schools
