JAMB warns against registering of minor for UTME

- Advertisement -

JAMB has warned parents against enrolling minor for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), urging parents to allow their children to be matured before registering.

This warning came from the Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, while reacting to a suit, filed by one Mrs Ifeanyi Eke against the Board over an alleged inappropriate text messages sent to her 15-year-old daughter (A minor) during the 2024 JAMB UTME registration.

Mrs. Eke had filed a N100m suit against JAMB and three others before the Federal High Court in Lagos over alleged unsolicited and inappropriate text messages sent to her 15-year-old daughter by JAMB. The JAMB Registrar stated that the source of the inappropriate messages was JAMB and the culprit is not even a staff of JAMB nor a staff of the CBT centre but a co-student; an undergraduate in one of the Universities.

“How did your girl of 15 years was ready for University now? If she is law abiding as she claimed. The law today is that you must spend six years before primary school, six years in primary school and six years in secondary school. By that time, you are 18.

But when you reduce three years, you must have cut corners to make a 15-year-old child ready for University education. We will meet her in court, it is for the court to decide whether she deserves that money,” Prof. Oloyede said.

Oloyede, maintained that the sender got the telephone number of the underage girl at the examination center because they had a form to fill, saying that it has dealt appropriately with the center, the reason being that it shouldn’t have allowed an unauthorized person into its premises.

He further warned that any center that allows a parent to get near to where the candidates are being screened, that centre will be deleted.
