Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Isiaq Oloyede, yesterday warned that students seeking admission into tertiary institutions across the country must ensure that letters of provisional admission handed over to them are the genuine ones issued by the board so as not to thwart the dream of furthering their education.
The warning came as the commissioner of police in Ogun State, Abiodun Alamutu and the Vice Chancellor, Abia State University (ABSU), Prof. Onyemachi Ogbulu, warned students of the institution, particularly those studying at its Ogun State affiliated institutions: Harvarde College in Abeokuta, to shun cultism, but approach their studies with total dedication to be profitable to their parents that invested so much on them.
They spoke during the 2023/2024 matriculation ceremony of Harvarde College yesterday in Obada-Oko, Ewekoro local government area of Ogun State.
Represented by the board’s coordinator in Ogun State, Akeem Abdul-Hammed, the JAMB registrar declared that any tertiary institution admission seeker that fails to follow due process would get into problem in the future.
Ogbulu declared that the institution would not renege in its war of expulsion and other penalties against students found to be contravening laid down standards.
Ogun CP, Alamutu, who lamented the menace of cultism and other related activities across the state, stressed that the trend had become a serious source of concern to security agencies.
President and founder of the institution, Dr. Adebayo Ouwatosin, charged the students to remain focused towards achieving excellent academic success which he said required diligence and perseverance.
