CBT centres across Nigeria have been directed not to allow parents/guardians into the registration hall again.
The Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, gave the directive in a statement on Friday.
According to the statement signed by JAMB Spokesman in Ilorin Office, Hassan Lawal, Oloyede was quoted as saying that the decision was made after inspecting some of the registration centres in Kwara State, which were overcrowded.
“The registrar said it has been discovered that the parents/guardians are always a distraction to both candidates and the centres and at the same time, congesting the halls by not following the COVID – 19 protocols,” Oloyede was quoted as saying.
The JAMB boss further enjoined parents/guardians to stop pushing the education of their wards faster than necessary.
“For example, a 14 or 15-year-old is not matured enough to undergo the process of registration and university pressure and are vulnerable to exploitation by scammers out there,” Oloyede added.
He also urged states Ministries of Education and relevant stakeholders who were saddled with the responsibility of enrollment of students into secondary schools to always ascertain the students’ true age before admittance into secondary schools.
