The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Ishaq Oloyede, revealed that the ongoing Direct Entry registration process has unearthed 1,665 counterfeit Advance Level results.

This was disclosed in the board’s weekly bulletin released in Abuja on Tuesday. Oloyede made this announcement during a meeting with officials of the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students.

The need to address the pervasive corruption within the system and restore the integrity of the admission process prompted the verification of A’ level results. Out of the identified fake results, 397 were traced back to Colleges of Education, 453 to university diplomas, with the remaining attributed to other A’ level certificates.

Oloyede emphasized the imperative of ensuring the credibility of educational qualifications submitted during the admission process. The prevalence of fraudulent A’ level results underscores the necessity for stringent measures to authenticate academic credentials.

JAMB’s efforts to combat counterfeit qualifications signify a commitment to upholding the standards and integrity of the education system. By exposing and addressing fake results, the board aims to safeguard the credibility and fairness of the admissions process for all applicants.

This revelation underscores the ongoing battle against corruption in Nigeria’s educational sector and highlights the importance of collaborative efforts to uphold transparency and integrity in academic admissions.

Oloyede urged the country’s institutions to take measures to safeguard the integrity of their certificates.
