We’ll continue with admission process, UNILAG tells JAMB

The University of Lagos on Monday said it will go ahead with the screening of prospective candidates for admission into the 2016/2017 academic session as scheduled.

Toyin Adebule, the institution’s deputy registrar, (information), said this in an interview with NAN in Lagos.

Adebule gave the university’s position against the backdrop of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) withdrawing the list of recommended candidates for admission, earlier sent to the various universities.

“We want to inform the public that our screening, for candidates that will be admitted for the 2016/17 academic session, will still hold scheduled from August 3, 2016 to August 24, 2016,” he said.


“It is true that JAMB had sent a list to us, which it had considered as those who met our cut-off point.

“It is this same list that it had withdrawn to allow the universities carry out their admission process as required by the law setting up their senates.

“There are statutory functions meant for all university senates, among which admissions is part one.


“It is only after selecting the candidates for admission that the senate refers the list to JAMB for confirmation in line with the admission criteria of merit, catchment and educationally disadvantaged states.

“And so, it is only proper for JAMB to have taken this step, realising that it had taken over the job of the universities’ senates.’’

He said candidates would be screened based on the authenticity of their results and their course combination.
