Admission process for 2020 will not be affected by ASUU strike – JAMB official

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has assured that the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would not affect the 2020/2021 admission process. This was disclosed by a senior official of JAMB while speaking with newsmen under the condition of anonymity.

The JAMB official also revealed that efforts are on by the board in partnership with other stakeholders, to come up with all necessary information that will guide prospective candidates on how to complete admission processes into institutions of their choice. He said: “We have conducted the examinations and by the end of this month, we will be starting our admission process’’

He noted that Nigerian universities’ calendar has never been the same. According to him, while some institutions have finished the last session and are waiting for JAMB to give them the go-ahead to start admissions; some government institutions are in the first semester.

“Those who are ready will start and those ones who are not can do admissions and when they finish, they can now call their students.’’
