The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has welcomed the decision of the Senate to probe alleged admission racketeering in universities, saying the exam body will be vindicated.

Recall that the Senate on Wednesday agreed to investigate allegations of admission racketeering in the nation’s universities following a motion moved by Senator Onyeka Nwebonyi (Ebonyi North).

Nwebonyi, who cited the admission travails of one Chinyere Ekwe at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), alleged that university staff members conspired with JAMB officials to carry out unwholesome practices, prompting the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, to call for a fair hearing.

Reacting to the development, JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, commended the Senate for giving an opportunity to the exam body to defend itself over the issue.

He said JAMB did not offer a provisional admission letter to the candidate and as a result welcomed the counsel of the Senate president that the matter be investigated, saying, “We will cooperate with the Senate.”
