The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB has disclosed that so far over 470,000 candidates have been offered admission in the 2018/2019 academic session. This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Governing Board of JAMB Dr. Emmanuel Ndukwe during an event to celebrate some staff of the board who retired recently in Abuja.
He commended the introduction of the JAMB CAPS adding that now admission process is now quite transparent. “As we were in one of the board meeting, admission were still going on. On the screen we were seeing it. It is changing by the minute,” he said.
Dr. Ndukwe said the board will fully implement the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS). “We are looking forward to the full implementation of CAPS.
That is the best thing that will happen to education in Nigeria. If any child is qualified, central admission processing system will guarantee that that person is admitted. People should be patient and pray as we are implementing CAPS, let is come into full operation from 2019. “You don’t need to know anybody to have admission and that is our mission now,” he added.
