APGA Chieftain Calls For Scrapping Of JAMB
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain, Dr Chinedu Ekwalo, has called for scraping of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), saying it was more of money-making than placement of students.

Ekwalo made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday when he visited the party’s headquarters in Abuja to pick Expression of Interest and Nomination forms.

According to him, JAMB had become more of a revenue generating organisation than an academic channel for children to tertiary institutions.

“I want JAMB to be scrapped and the reason is because Nigerian universities put together, has a carrying capacity of 600, 000 people and every year we have no fewer than two million persons who sit for JAMB.

“Even if universities should absorb more than their capacities, there are always many who remained without admission, and this happens annually.
