JAMB blames exam malpractices on ‘parental influence’

JOINT Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has identified undue parental influence as a major factor militating against examination integrity.

  The indictment was handed down by a three-man delegation from JAMB during a television programme monitored in Abuja.

  Regretting that the challenge also hinders effective nurturing of future leaders for the country, JAMB said that many parents contribute to this conundrum by going to many lengths to aid or abet their children and wards’ participation in exam scams.

  While fielding questions from panelists on the ‘Review of 2022 UTME’ during  the programme, Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said “some parents, in their desperation, are always hell-bent on following their wards to the examination centres even into the examination hall and any resistance by the officials at the centre sometimes leads to assaults.”

  Other members of the JAMB board in the delegation on the programme include Director of Information Technology Services, Mr. Fabian Okoro, Head of Public Affairs and Protocols, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, and Assistant Director of Registrar’s Office, Mr. Abdulahi Ashura.
