Ten Reasons To Vote Out JAMB.

It is saddening how the fate and future of our young generation is being decided upon by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board.

If the economy and entire government is making us depend on a University Certificate for our survival, then JAMB should be scrapped out. It’s rather rendering our educational sector irrelevant, as well as a Twelve years of educational training. 

  1. If after Twelve years of learning and development, the government can indirectly decide that the West African  Examination Council (WAEC) certificate is not valid and genuine enough to grant us entry into a university, then it’s safe to say that our Education Sector is a big joke. 
  2. Nigerians should not be punished for this instabilitity and indecisive approach, rather we should be encouraged and empowered. The idea of JAMB is time consuming, frustrating and unnecessary. If we analyse carefully,  we’d understand the shortcomings and unnecessary expenses it entails. 
  3. JAMB should be free. Since the federal government has given JAMB so much relevance and credit, then they should make it free for all. The Universal Basic Education  (UBE) is a body set up to enhance a better education for young Nigerians, and I think it’s time the UBE gets involved in this. 
  4. JAMB is not giving Nigerians access to the education that’s deserving, rather it’s building an impenetrable fence between prospective students and the universities in the country. 
  5. If WAEC can grant us entry into a foreign university, of what importance is JAMB to us? Even though the educational standards of those foreign universities are legit and impeccable, yet our WAEC Certificate is just about the most important thing required of us.
  6. JAMB is more likely a money bag set up by the government, working hand in hand with the universities in Nigeria, basically set to milk away the little funds we slave enough to earn. And as it stands, JAMB IS NOT WORKING FOR US. 
  7. After paying for WAEC, we spend days writing the exams set by the WAEC body, which is basically the only passport and surest qualification granted to us at the end of a Twelve  (12) years learning process. These same universities take out these same scripts, twist them up and set up another exam indirectly using the JAMB body to scrutinise and defraud us.
  8. The money, the time, the brains, the government and the education system is for the people of Nigeria. It’s time to put a stop to the discrimination, the abuse, the hurts and disappointments arising from these scrutiny. The slavery must be stopped, the Nigerian student is good enough, well learned, fearless and strong enough to be admitted into a Nigeria University. 
  9. JAMB is an insult to the West African Examination Council, regardless of whether or not the government agrees to spell it out. JAMB in association with the federal government has given the Nigeria Universities a “go ahead certification” that’s basically there to promote discrimination, tribalism, favoritism and nonchalance in these various schools, thereby reducing humanity in education to zero.
  10. JAMB is a manual process of indirect fraud. Whether or not we like it, many children are sitting at home today without a university admission after several purchase of the JAMB form. Nigeria students needs to be empowered and educated, we don’t need jamb when we already have WAEC.  


Just as the Nigeria students are being rejected by schools and colleges today, the labour market however murders our lifetime struggles by refusing us access to good jobs, because we didn’t attend some of the popular universities in Nigeria. 

The veil has been lifted, the people no longer walk in the shadows. Let us not be swayed, we are a strong people, with rights.
