The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has uncovered 3,000 fake graduates in Nigeria.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, announced this during a meeting with the delegation of the Committee of Pro Chancellors of State Universities in Nigeria (COPSUN) in Abuja.

According to details published in the board’s bulletin, Oloyede condemned the practice of illegal admissions in some universities across the country. He revealed that some “graduates” had never attended a university due to endemic corruption in the system, and the board had documented over 3,000 such cases.

“Illegal admission of candidates into tertiary institutions is an embarrassment and a disservice to the nation,” Oloyede said.

The DAILY POST reports that the examination body had previously warned candidates against accepting admissions without full academic participation.

It is worth noting that in December 2023, the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education had ordered JAMB to present a list of tertiary institutions involved in irregular admissions.
