JAMB Says No Clash of 2022 UTME & WAEC Timetable
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Speaks on the Rumour Speculated by Students on the Clash of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) Timetable for 2020/2021 Academic Session.

Following the wide speculation and rumour by students and others on the clash of the 2022 UTME and WASSCE examination the Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB has disclosed that there is no clash between its timetable and that of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

The JAMB Registrar, Is’haq Oloyede, said at an interactive session with Editors in Lagos on Tuesday, that there was no basis for such speculation because the organisation was holding annual meetings with the examination bodies to reconcile areas of interest.

“We meet annually with WAEC, NECO and others to reconcile because we have the same target of education development,’’ he said.

He said those attacking him and the system out of ignorance would not succeed in distracting him from pursuing the target of ensuring national development through sound education for Nigerians.

Mr Oloyede enumerated various measures inimical to education development, including multiple registration, abuse of biometric system and other forms of corruption in the system.

The registrar said JAMB, under his leadership, was determined to clean the system with legitimate approach.
