The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has reaffirmed that the November 30th deadline for conclusion of admissions into higher institutions for 2016 remains effective.

Registrar of the board, Ishaq Oloyede, stated this on Friday during his speech at the opening of an Extra-Ordinary Technical Committee Meeting on 2016 Admissions to First Choice Institutions, which was held at Baze University, Abuja.

Oloyede said the meeting was an indication that the board was ready to attend to legitimate requests of its stakeholders and clients in the collective quest for efficiency.

He assured that the board would be flexible except in cases where flexibility would be unethical or inimical to national interest. According to him, the meeting is in line with the board’s pledge to be consultative and all-inclusive in the discharge of its functions.

Oloyede said, “The First Technical Committee Meeting was held in Bayero University, Kano, from Aug. 22 to Aug.  26, where institutions were expected to make submissions for their first choice admissions to admissions’ panels at the technical sessions.

“However, some institutions informed the meeting that they were not ready to make submissions as internal processes leading to the exercise had not been completed.

“The affected institutions requested for an earlier special date than the date for the Second Technical Committee Meeting scheduled for Nov. 14 in Owerri, Imo State.”

Oloyede said he expected the institutions represented at the meeting to be prepared to make presentations of their recommended candidates to the board.

He said the meeting was primarily for placement of suitably qualified candidates into tertiary institution. (TV360 Nigeria)
