The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it will work with security agencies to prosecute any institution or candidate found breaching its admissions code.
The board announced this in its bulletin made available to journalists on Monday in Abuja.
It said that henceforth, stringent measures including prosecution, would be taken against erring candidate or institution once a prima facie case has been established against them.
The decision, the board explained, is part of its resolution after the management meeting on the imperative of ridding the admissions process of unwholesome practices.
JAMB’s Registrar, Is-haq Oloyede, was quoted as saying that measures were being put in place to curb admission infractions.
He said although the Central Admissions Process System (CAPS) had made the admission process transparent, fair and equitable, some stakeholders were, however, working hard to circumvent the system.
“The board, with zero tolerance for corrupt acts, will not fold its arms and allow unscrupulous elements to drag it back.
“For the gains of CAPS’ initiative not to be eroded and to ensure that there are consequences for flouting government’s directive on complying with the process, the board has concluded all arrangements with relevant security agencies.
“These agencies are ready to prosecute any stakeholder, candidate or admissions officers found wanting,’’ Oloyede was quoted as saying.
