Boko Haram Made JAMB Cancel Exam In Northern Nigeria
Boko Haram says its dislike western education and will do just about anything to make it history in Nigeria and so, the bombings of schools was also included on their agenda. Now, JAMB is afraid of conductingexams in northern states of Nigeria simply because of Boko Haram's evil on even little school boys and girls.
The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, has said there will be no Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in the volatile states in northern Nigeria. Ojerinde made the announcement on Friday in Abuja while speaking with reporters at the 58th National Council on Education (NEC) meeting.
According to him, JAMB will be forced to cancel the examination if the Boko Haram attacks on primary and secondary schools in Borno State continue. “When we reviewed the situation in volatile states, for instance Borno, we realised that some of the schools are being bombed, but our investigations showed that only primary schools are affected and not secondary schools. The board will be left with no option than to tell the candidates to go elsewhere to write the exams if schools which serve as centres are attacked.’’ The registrar regretted that the development could be quite unfortunate for the students
