JAMB: no malpractices so far in Ekiti

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said so far, no candidate has been caught for examination malpractices during the 2015/2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Ekiti State.
The state’s JAMB Coordinator, Aliyu Jubril, said candidates have cooperated with the officials of the board since the examination commenced on Saturday, a move he said has enhanced the credibility of the examination.
Jubril also said adequate facilities as well as security have been provided at the eight centres where the examination is holding.
Some candidates told our reporter at the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti, that they were satisfied with the conduct of the exam.
One of them, Sola Alabi, said the computer-based test has helped eliminate exam malpractice.
Meanwhile Daleaware Institute of Technology, a centre in Palmgrove, Lagos, has debunked news on the social media that the centre barred Muslims wearing hijab from taking the examination.
On Monday, there were reports that female Muslim candidates were told to remove their Hijab before being allowed into the centre. There was a claim that a notice was placed at the centre that stated that hijabs were not allowed.
A sibling of one of the girls alleged to have been affected, Olawale Bashua, said he put pressure on the centre to rescind the decision.
“When I got to the scene, I learnt those who agreed to remove their hijab had gained entry into the hall. I had earlier instructed my sister not to remove her hijab until I came around. I demanded to speak with the Jamb official; he told me that the matter was with the centre.
“They later told me they would allow my sister to write her paper on personal and compassionate ground. I told them that I was not there for my sister alone but for all sisters in hijab. Later, another brother joined me. He went to the University of Lagos (UNILAG) to mobilise brothers and sisters to the centre. People were calling from different parts of the country. The management of the centre realised they may not be able to sustain the heat. They quickly rescinded their decision. We asked them to remove the message at their entrance which forbade the use of hijab. They swiftly complied,” he said.
However, the institute debunked the claims. Its Coordinator, Mr Segun Babalola, said a disagreement ensued when a Muslim candidate declined being frisked by officials of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).
Babalola said: “There was nobody denied (from writing UTME). We have pictures of candidates who with their hijab wrote their examination on Monday and even on Saturday. This issue came up because of a Muslim girl who refused to subject herself to the security details. The Civil Defence.
