99% of tertiary institutions comply with January 25 admission deadline – JAMB


By Joseph Erunke
ABUJA – THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, said yesterday that the level of compliance by tertiary institutions to its January 25 admission deadline was 99 percent.

JAMB said one percent of the nation’s tertiary institutions did not meet the deadline even as it did not state the reasons the tertiary institutions adduced for not meeting up.

JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, responding to Vanguard’ telephone inquiry, said while 99 percent of the nation’s tertiary institutions were able to comply with its January 25 deadline, some others which he said, were in the one percent bracket, could not meet up.

He, however, could not give the names of those that complied as well as institutions that couldn’t meet up just as he did not disclose whether any sanction await the institutions that failed to meet up with the deadline.
