The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board, UTME has revealed that at least seven institutions violated the 2019 admission process.

The board stated that these institutions were involved in the “warehousing of candidates” into their portals.

Warehousing of candidates, according to the board, occurs when the candidate’s name is not on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) but the institution still goes ahead to admit them through its web portal.

In the case of the University of Ibadan, the board said a candidate, Sanni Abdul Rahman, who applied to the University of Ibadan got Economics on CAPS “but changed to Adult Education on the university portal”.

The regulatory body also complained that another candidate who applied for human nutrition and scored 242 in UTME, 72 in Post-UTME with an aggregate score of 66.25 was transferred to study agricultural extention.

“University then admitted people below her into Human Nutrition,” JAMB said.

However, PREMIUM TIMES reports that in the document of JAMB’s 2020 virtual policy meeting, the board said appropriate caution was given to the institutions to desist from such illegitimate actions.

“Any such act will henceforth be visited with appropriate sanctions and the board shall continue to protect the rights of all candidates to be given their due irrespective of their social status,” the board said.
