Education Minister commends JAMB for integrity, service delivery

The Minister for Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has lauded the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for ensuring optimum service delivery in its operations.

The minister said this on Saturday while unveiling the remodeled JAMB Headquarters Complex in Bwari Abuja.

Adamu, represented by Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, Executive Secretary, National University Commission (NUC) said that the board’s show of integrity was worth emulating.

According to him, this has continued to be the flagship of the education sector in terms of transparent and honest service delivery.

Adamu also said that the recent ‘painstaking effort’ of the board at scrutinising the process of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and its relationship with intent, plans, and execution of examination malpractice was not a misplaced one.

He, however, said that the outcome of the exercise has revealed a lot of rot in the education system.

The minister said that it was unfortunate, as examination malpractice was mostly practiced by the youths who are the leaders of tomorrow.

He added that the Federal Ministry of Education was in full support of JAMB’s efforts.

He also said that the Ministry would continue to give it all the assistance is required to ensure that the syndicate in the examination industry is frontally confronted in the overall interest of the country.

Adamu further directed that all public examination bodies must ensure the cleanup and sanitation of their registration processes, in emulation of JAMB.

He expressed satisfaction that the Board had been prudent in expending its resources and getting value for the same, while also calling on the staff and community to use the facilities efficiently.
