The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned candidates against accepting any offer of admission not on its letter headed paper and on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).
JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement Thursday in Lagos that any candidate who engaged in it did so at his or her own risk.
According to Benjamin, the attention of the board has been drawn to the purported offer of admissions for the 2019/2020 admission exercise to candidates through the portal of some tertiary institutions.
He stressed that the board had since dissociated itself from such practice as it was a flagrant abuse of the automated CAPS, which provided the only credible and legal avenue for placements into all tertiary institutions in the country.
“The public will recall that the board had announced that it will be stopping the condonment of illegitimate admissions formally known as regularisation from 2017
