Confusion Dogs 2016/2017 Admission, JAMB Withdraws List Sent to Universities

In what looks like confusion in the process of 2016/2017 admission into Nigerian universities, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), said it has withdrawn the list of candidates for admission into Nigerian universities.
The Board said its earlier list sent to the tertiary institutions, has become irrelevant in the face of the new directive.
In a statement by Fabian Benjamin, the organisation’s head of media on Sunday, JAMB said: “This is to ensure that the University Senate perform its statutory responsibility of conducting the selection of candidates and refer it to JAMB for confirmation in line with the admission criteria of merit, catchment and educationally disadvantaged states as directed by the Hon Minister of Education at the policy committee meeting.
“The earlier list was sent to help fast track the process of admission so as to allow other tiers of institutions also conduct their admission.
“Candidates should not panic because this is part of the process of the 2016 admission exercise. JAMB regrets any inconvenience this decision would have caused the tertiary institutions
“The Board regrets any inconvenience it’s proactive step would have caused the tertiary institutions”, the statement said.
