Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been advised to find a way of hasten up admission process into various universities in the country which is a little bit delayed this year.
The board is also tasked to organised a retreat to brainstorm on how best they can handle admission process in order to avoid delay being experienced this year.
The immediate past Vice Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Professor Abdulganiy Ambali gave the advise in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital during an award in recognition of his service to the country and two other people by the Ahmadu Bello University Alumni Association, Kwara state chapter.
”The body responsible for admission should see how they will conclude this year’s admission and thereafter have a small retreat to brainstorm on their experience vis-a-vis what happened last year and then be able to identify loopholes and how best to do it in order to make sure that the delay will not be experience again next year,” he said.
Other awardees include the Kwara state head of service, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole and Director of Administration at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Mr David S. Odaibo.
Oluwole while responding to the award said it mean so much to her because it shows that she has the support of her root as people she knew when she was nothing are still with her.
“The award will keep reminding me that I have people watching me and I cannot afford to disappoint them and the institution. It will push me to do more,” she said.
Earlier, the President of the association and General Manager of Radio Kwara, Mr Abdullateef Adedeji, said the award was informed by the need to celebrate themselves as well as honour some alumni for the achievement in life and contributions to societal development.
