According to JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, these individuals never set foot in a classroom, yet claim to be graduates. Oloyede emphasized that illegal admissions by some institutions remain a source of embarrassment to the country.


“Some ‘graduates’ had never entered the four walls of a university owing to the endemic corruption in the system, but the board had documented over 3,000 of such cases,” Oloyede stated in a report published in JAMB’s bulletin. “Illegal admission of candidates into tertiary institutions in the country is an embarrassment and a disservice to the nation.”



This revelation comes after the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education ordered JAMB in December 2023 to present a list of tertiary institutions conducting irregular and illegal admissions.


JAMB had earlier warned candidates against accepting admissions from such institutions without full academic participation.


All applications for admissions to first-degree programs must be processed through JAMB, the examination body reiterated in a statement titled “Cessation of illegal/irregular admission.”
