Scores of candidates are beginning to heave in anxiety about the fate of their 2016/2017 admission status, as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) continues the process of scrutinizing the first batch of applicants submitted to it by the various universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
The anxiety of the applicants begun to gather significant momentum after the board assured that it would upload the lists for candidates’ accessibility three days after meeting with stakeholders in Kano, Kano State.
JAMB Officials – led by their Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede – and stakeholders had earlier conveyed a meeting last week at the Bayero University, Kano State, where they looked into the 2016/2017 admission exercise.
But as of Wednesday evening, the board had yet to upload the lists.
Speaking on the matter, the JAMB Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, however, said that it would upload the lists before the end of the week.
This he said as he stressed that the board is still reconciling all the data forwarded to it by the various institutions to ensure that they respected the laid down procedures.
The JAMB spokesman also stated that the final lists of candidates seeking admission to the nation’s universities in the 2016/2017 academic session would not be known until November 14 when the board as well as other stakeholders would meet again to determine their fate.
The meeting, according to Benjamin, will hold in Owerri, Imo State capital.
He, however, assured that the delay would not result in denying any eligible candidate admission, The Punch reports
