CBT Fallout: Group Seeks Support for JAMB

The Africa Arise for Change Network (AACN) has urged Nigerians to show understanding for the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) as it faces unique challenges in bringing Nigerian tertiary institutions’ entrance examination to contemporary world standards.

The network’s leader, Nkechi Odoma,who was reacting to recent protests  by some students who took part in the Computer Based Test (CBT) by JAMB, the explained that Nigerians would have reacted differently if they understood the enormity of logistics and technicalities involved in the exercise.

Odoma, who spoke to journalists in Abuja on Saturday, clarified that her group was not holding brief for the examination body but that it would be sad to see the innovations brought in by JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Dibu Ojerinde rolled back on account of hitches experienced this year.

She noted that Nigerians however have the right and responsibility to insist that JAMB performs better next time since the examination directly impact the future of youths and the finances of their parents.

“We are not saying people should not protest or air their grievances, but those of us interested in the quality of education in this country should be seriously worried when proprietors of ‘miracles examination centres’ are sponsoring protests because of  the Computer Based Test.’’
