National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), calls for JAMB to decentralize direct entry registration, improving safety and accessibility for Nigerian students.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), led by the Vice President of External Affairs, Comrade Afeez Babatunde Akinteye, has urged the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to decentralize the direct entry admission registration process across Nigeria. This move, according to NANS, would minimize the risks and challenges faced by students traveling between communities to register for admissions.

The student body expressed their condolences to the family of Miss Mahasin Idrees, an applicant who tragically lost her life in a car accident while returning to Zaria from Kaduna after completing her direct entry registration.
In a statement, Akinteye argued that restricting direct entry registration to JAMB offices in state capitals is unnecessary, as technology can be leveraged to enable students to register from any location. This would ultimately reduce the need for students to embark on long, hazardous journeys, thus enhancing their safety.
Akinteye further highlighted the issues faced by applicants who travel to state capitals for registration, including the risk of encountering dilapidated roads and insecurity across the country. Moreover, the JAMB offices are often overwhelmed with multiple applicants, leading to delays in the registration process.
To address these concerns, NANS has implored the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, to make better use of ICT centers owned by public tertiary institutions. By contracting result verification experts to manage these centers, the registration process could be streamlined and adapted to contemporary realities.
In conclusion, the National Association of Nigerian Students is advocating for the decentralization of direct entry registration, which would not only increase accessibility but also ensure the safety of applicants. By leveraging technology and existing resources, JAMB can create a more efficient and secure registration process for students across Nigeria.
