Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, FUTA, Ondo State, Prof. Adebiyi Daramola, has urged the Federal Government not to scrap the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, but allow it continue with its responsibilities.


But the vice-chancellor said the National Examinations Council, NECO, could be scrapped based on the recommendation of the Oronsaye panel.

Daramola, who spoke with journalists during a condolence visit to the Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, over the death of his deputy, Mrs. Funmilayo Olayinka, said proper consideration must be given to the cause of advancement of education.

The vice-chancellor’s words: “If it is because of the financial implications of running JAMB that the government is being advised to scrap it, that burden can be taken away from the government by allowing the private sector to help in running it. Saving money should not lead to killing agencies that are quite relevant to the development of the nation.”

The academic, who described Olayinka as a worthy daughter of Ekiti State, said that the late deputy governor lived a fulfilled life.

Daramola said FUTA had signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with Florida Agricultural Mechanical University in the United States of America on exchange programmes for students of the two schools
