JAMB stops communication with institutions, regulatory agencies through letters

Published

on

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said it would cease to receive any communication through letter writing from tertiary institutions and their regulatory agencies from January 1,2023.

This came as the board automated curriculum, accreditation, and general administration matters between it, tertiary institutions and their regulatory agencies, through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System, IBASS.

JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, speaking during a meeting with regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions from the North and Southern regions at JAMB headquarters, Bwari, on Monday, said from January 1,2023, the board will not receive any letter from any institution or agency except through IBASS.

According to him, IBASS will ensure seamless communication between JAMB, institutions and their regulatory agencies without the use of letter writing as the practice has been.

He further stated that the automation of curriculum, accreditation and general administration matters among JAMB, regulatory agencies and Institutions will provide personalised services to the institutions and agencies as only JAMB and the institution will be able to see any communication on the platform.

He said:”We discovered that we spend our time attending to letters from some major stakeholders of the board and the major stakeholders are essentially regulatory agencies: NUC, NBTE and NCCE. Apart from these stakeholders, we also receive from 890 institutions across the country.”

“Essentially, the regulatory agencies appeal to us for approval of new programmes and accreditation of programmes. And what we receive from institutions is essentially about admission and registration or accreditation of new courses or quota issue.”

The JAMB boss said the board felt that having been able to augment its communication with over 2 million students across tertiary institutions in the country through its Central Admission Processing System, CAPS, it can apply same to admission and accreditation matters related to regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions.

Hear him:”With this platform if NUC approves admission quota, it would be centralised in such a way that as soon as you see approved, everybody will see it and there is no need to write to JAMB.

“Before now, registrars of institutions had no say that they have been complaining that they want to fall to know what the what they are doing and a platform has been created for them they may not be able to effect changes but will see everything.”

The JAMB boss noted that the platform will improve efficiency of all the operations of the board.

Also speaking, the Executive Secretary of National Universities Commission, NUC, Prof Abubakar Rasheed, said in the last 6 years, JAMB has built a strong relationship with regulatory agencies and institutions of higher learning in the country.

Rasheed expressed belief that the cordial relationship has yielded many mutual benefits including the setting up of the platforms.

    I have really noticed that fixing credit activity must be conducted with techniques. If not, it’s possible you’ll find yourself endangering your positioning. In order to reach your goals in fixing your credit score you have to ensure that from this moment in time you pay your monthly fees promptly before their appointed date. It is definitely significant simply because by not accomplishing that, all other actions that you will take to improve your credit rank will not be powerful. Thanks for discussing your strategies.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) secured the conviction on Wednesday in Abuja.

The offense is contrary to section 1 (1) (a) and punishable under section 1 (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006.

Count two of the charge reads: “That you, Professor Magaji Garba, whilst being the Vice Chancellor, Federal University, Gusau on or about the 15th of May, 2019 in Abuja within the jurisdiction of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja with intent to defraud obtained the sum of N100,000,000 (One Hundred Million Naira) from Alhaji Shehu Umar Sambo, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Ministaco Nigeria Limited, a contractor executing the construction of the Grand Convocation Square of the Federal University, Gusau under the false pretense of awarding a project for the perimeter wall fencing of the University valued at the total sum of N3,000,000,000.00 (Three Billion Naira) which representation/pretense you knew to be false”.

FG introduces new subject in primary schools

Published

The federal government says mother tongue will henceforth be adopted as the mode of instruction in primary schools.

Adamu Adamu, minister of education, said this on Wednesday while speaking with journalists after a meeting of the federal executive council (FEC).

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adamu said the federal government understands that implementation will be challenging, adding that the mother tongue will be combined with English language from junior secondary school level.

The mother tongue is the language a person is first introduced to as a child.

“A memo on national policy was approved by the council. So, Nigeria now has a national language policy and the details will be given later by the ministry,” Adamu said.

“One of the highlights is that the government has agreed now that henceforth, instruction in primary schools — the first six years of learning — will be in the mother tongue.

“Theoretically, this policy starts from today, but the use of mother tongue is exclusive. We need time to develop the material, get the teachers, and so on.

“Since the first six years of school should be in the mother tongue, the language of the host community is what will be used because we have 625 languages at the last count and the objective of this policy is to promote and enhance the cultivation and use of all Nigerian languages.”

Adamu said the policy is informed by the extinction of some local languages and the government’s determination to preserve cultures.

He added that all Nigerian languages will be prioritised.
