The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has asked the Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB, to within 48 hours refund the N50 it charged 2019 candidates of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME
NANS, which accused JAMB of siphoning the money from students, said if the examination board failed to to make the refund within the stipulated time, it would incur its wrath.
The Association, in a statement from its National Senate Secretariat, under the leadership of its national Senate President, Comrade Abdulmajeed Oladimeji Oyeniyi, demanded the refund of the N50 SMS charges to Nigerian Students, urging the board to send the examination results directly to candidates’ phone since it has their database.
“We are never an accident of history; we are part and parcel of the struggle so far. The Nigerian students no longer have confidence in the board’s leadership and decision making.
“In a sane community, Computer Based Test (CBT) should be well planned before execution to cater for the purposes it was invented for.
“The sanity in the system should ensure appropriate immediate release of results of examinations done by students but it was unfortunate that the board took almost a month to release results across the nation with unprofessional, unethical, non-ideological and non-technological excuses which is nothing but a disgrace to us as giant of Africa,” the statement reads.
