Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has dished out warnings to candidates sitting for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to stay away from any form of malpractices, as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board holds mock UTME today.
The minister made this known on Monday in Abuja, at the opening of the JAMB’s newly-built General Services Department building at the board’s headquarters in Bwari.
Prof Is-haq Oloyede, Jamb Registrar, said the N89m building would assist workers to perform their duties more efficiently.
He added that the government detests corrupt practices and also put out a warning to other tertiary institutions to abide by the rules of the Central Admission Processing System established by JAMB.
Adamu said, “Candidates who are billed to sit for the 2020 UTME are urged to refrain from any form of malpractices as this administration detests all forms of corruption, including examination malpractice and admission racketeering.
“Permit me to seize this opportunity to state that the leadership of any higher institution found to be involved in admitting any candidate without the prior approval of the board or outside the established platform – CAPS – would be considered and treated as corrupting the system.”
