The board’s spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement published on Sunday in Abuja that it was regrettable that the ASUU president was not sufficiently informed about the university admissions procedure.
The statement said in part, “The attention of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been called to the ill-informed comment made by the shaken President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke.”
In his arduous endeavor to gain favor with the people, the ASUU president made the regrettable mistake of saying, ‘…admissions are being done by JAMB and submitted to you…’
Vice Chancellors have no concept how admissions work.’
“It is heinous for an academic, especially if a well recognized scholar, to be unaware of how applicants are admitted or to be unprepared for such a public arena.” As a consequence, it is evident that the crisis in the educational sector is more serious than we previously thought.
“We challenge the professor to name one vice-chancellor of a university, rector of a polytechnic, or provost of any college of education who has been admitted without being recommended by the institution in the last five years.”
“The board has promised the professor a million naira if he can provide even one proof of his deception.”
