…they bring someone, collect four million, place the person in final year, call it Top-up admission – JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede
“Gaps have already been identified with a number of resolutions reached on how to eradicate recurrent challenges but implementation has remained elusive. Thus, the agenda for today’s meeting is encapsulated in the theme: APPRECIATING THE ROLE OF REGISTRARS AS FULCRUM IN THE MOBILISATION PROCESS”.
“It is drawn in recognition of the pivotal position of school Registrars in the formulation and implementation of policies. In schools where Registrars have abdicated their roles to subordinate officers, we have seen various forms of abuses and shortfalls. This has given rise to occasional mobilisation of unqualified persons, many of whom have been detected and fished out by NYSC field officers”.
He emphasized that the scheme was determined to tighten loopholes and commence the prosecution of anyone found complicit in the mobilisation of unqualified persons.
The NYSC DG also called on Nigerians to support the establishment of the NYSC Trust Fund which he said would help empower corps members and address unemployment.
The theme of the meeting is: “APPRECIATING THE ROLE OF REGISTRARS AS FULCRUM IN THE MOBILISATION PROCESS”.
