JAMB Launches Investigation Into Allegations of UNILAG Denying 2,000 Applicants Admission Over Awaiting Results
JAMB Begins Investigation Over Claims of UNILAG's Denial of Admission To Candidates
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has responded to reports claiming that the University of Lagos (UNILAG) denied admission to 2,000 candidates due to pending O’Level results. Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol at JAMB, clarified that candidates, not JAMB, are responsible for uploading their O’Level results on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) platform.
In a statement released on Friday, October 20, Benjamin stated that JAMB is actively investigating the allegations made against UNILAG. He emphasized JAMB's commitment to ensuring that qualified candidates are not unjustly denied admission. According to Benjamin, the CAPS tracking facility records the exact date, time, and seconds when results are uploaded, providing indisputable evidence in case of disputes.
