The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reacted to the claims by the management of University of Benin that the suspension of its CBT centre was hastily carried out. According to JAMB, the high-level of extortion of candidates at the University of Benin’s Computer-Based Centre which led to its suspension was shocking.
The board in a statement signed by JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin asked the university to do a through job to uncover those behind the shocking act.
According to the statement, the Registrar of the board, Ishaq Oloyede, was particularly not only shocked but also more disturbed with evidence of the extortion of candidates by the university’s CBT centre.
Mr Fabian said the board refutes the comment that the conclusion was done hastily and without proper investigation.
“An apology shall be required not only to the Board but also to the nation if, after the denial, the evidence is adduced to prove the infraction committed on the ground of a highly respected institution as the University of Benin,” he said.
