Today JAMB released statements which warned students to shun admission letters been offered to them by University of Abuja and other universities on the basis that the admissions were not been processed by the Central Admission Processing System otherwise known as CAPS.
It has warned candidates who applied for the named universities from accepting admission offers from the universities because the admissions were given outside the body of the matriculation board.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the head of public affairs and protocols insisted that such admissions have neither been approved,proposed nor accepted on the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS). He further stated that the universities main aim is bent on collecting the acceptance fees of the candidates and not necessarily following the due admission process under the board. In a statement ;
"These universities have been reported to be issuing admission letters to candidates without recourse yo the board. It is therefore,pertinent to state that such admissions that have not been proposed, approved nor accepted on the CAPS are null and void,and as such,asking hapless candidates to pay acceptance fees for such admissions that has not been proposed through CAPS amounts for illegality".
Attempts were made to contact the public relations officer of the university of Abuja,Dr Habib Yakoob,in other to a get response or feedback were all unsuccessful.
