The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says any candidate who chooses to get an underhand admission should face the consequences.

This is even as the Board reiterated that all tertiary institutions’ admissions must be processed through it.

In a social media post on Sunday, the board responded to a user’s request to enhance the admission regularization process.

Adenkule Adu had urged Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to include in its portal a better channel to get regularization done without visiting the office.

Adu complained that he has been patronising the office in his state for months but keeps getting excuses.

“It is high time JAMB improved the admission regularisation process.

“JAMB should include in its portal a better channel to get this done without visiting the office.

“I’ve been patronising the office in my state for months now; they kept giving me excuses,” he wrote.

However, JAMB replied that the admonition should rather be to stop the exercise (regularization) in its entirety.

JAMB wrote: “The admonition should rather be to stop the exercise in its entirety.

“The policy is clear: ‘all tertiary institution admissions must be processed through Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. As such, any candidate who chooses to get an underhand admission should face the consequences’.

“How would you be involved in illegality and still get effrontery to offer advice on how the correction process should be carried out? Be guided.”
