Reps Sets Committee To Investigate JAMB For Imposing Multiple Charges On Candidates

The House of Representatives on Wednesday mandated its Committee on Tertiary Education and Services to investigate the multiple processing and administrative fees imposed by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board and its accredited agents on candidates and report back within four weeks.

This followed the adoption of a motion by a lawmaker, Sergius Ose Ogun, who expressed concerns over the trouble many candidates went through in paying various processing fees to JAMB and its accredited agents.

He enumerated the administrative and processing fees charged by JAMB CBT accredited centres to include: “application for transfer, N7,000; change of admission letter with registration number, N5,000; application for correction of data (like date of birth, etc), N2,500; printing of JAMB result slip, N1,000; printing of JAMB admission letter, N1,000; change of institution/course N2,500 and retrieving of JAMB registration number N1,000.”

Ogun said by the provisions of the Act, JAMB is an examination conducting body and not primarily a revenue-generating organ of the Federal Government, hence, the need to probe such multiple processing fees being charged.

He expressed worries that many JAMB candidates who are not privileged to afford the charges/fees would suffer undue hardships and ultimately lose out from taking the examination.
