Unilorin: ‘JAMB rules didn’t delay us’


THE University of Ilorin, Kwara State, has debunked rumours that the 2017/2018 admission was stalled because of rules introduced by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
A statement by Head of Corporate Affairs, Kunle Akogun, said: “Please refer to a story in your Thursday, November 22 paper, page 22, titled: ‘New JAMB rules delay Unilorin admission list’.
“The management of the University of Ilorin takes serious exception to that headline, which is misleading. There is nowhere in the story under reference that the chairman, Unilorin Admission Committee, blamed the new rules of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for delay in the release of the list of newly-admitted students.
“We reckon that the headline, which does not tally with the reported story, could be the product of an amateurish interpretative journalism. But in this case, it ended up distorting the entire story, thus misleading unsuspecting readers, especially those who don’t have the patience to read the story to the end.
“The University of Ilorin holds JAMB in high esteem, and we are proud of innovations being introduced by the board, whose Chief Executive, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, is our former vice chancellor. We believe that those innovations are meant to make university admission a seamless exercise.”
