JAMB uncovers 3,000 fake graduates

By AmforGod J. Olisa

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has uncovered over 3,000 individuals falsely claiming to be university graduates despite never having attended a university.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, revealed this during a meeting with the leadership of the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of State Universities (COPSUN). He attributed the existence of these fake graduates to widespread corruption within the system. Prof. Oloyede emphasized that JAMB has documented these cases and is actively addressing the issue of illegal admissions in tertiary institutions. He described the situation as an “embarrassment and disservice to the nation.”

This discovery underscores the urgent need for increased vigilance and accountability in the education sector to prevent fraudulent activities and protect the integrity of university degrees.
