Concern for Muslim rights, MURIC, has asked the Nigerian police to file the tricks of the professional examinations recently arrested by the Joint Admission Registration Council, JAMB.
JAMB announced the arrest of over 100 professional test traps during this year’s exams (2019).
The suspects include: two biological children of the owner of a computerized Testing Center (TCC) accredited in Lagos.
MURIC has now reacted to the development in a press release signed by its director, prof. Ishaq Akintola, and made available to DAILY POST on Thursday.
The statement says: “The arrest of these professional writers is a revelation. It confirms what we have been saying for several years. The phenomenon of lazy Nigerian youth is no longer a myth. Many people wanted to crucify President Muhammadu Buhari when he used that a few months ago, but we can all see now.
“While Nigeria has been blessed by many young workers, there are many black sheep that tarnish the image of workers. We ask the security agencies to publicly take prisoners to act as a deterrent to others. They should not be treated with gloves for children.
“Their names and faces should be exposed to friends and family. They must parade like bad eggs in society. We all know that the norms and values of society have been broken for a long time, but we never knew that things had degenerated at this level, it’s a real shame.
“Where is the well-known sense of African dignity? Where is the pride of the Negro who, decades ago, could beat his chest and rub proudly with the intellectual giants of the West? The owner of the CBT center in Lagos, which allowed to his two biological children to represent other candidates, it is a disgrace for all Nigerian parents, and his despicable behavior confirms the breaking of the norms and values of the family in Nigerian society.
“This is a father who trains his children to fill Nigerian universities with non-specialized students. Some of those” assisted “by them will graduate as” doctors “who will become the precursors of the death of hundreds of innocent patients simply because they are never been really qualified to read the medicine in the first place.
“It is more painful when we realize that these people have been doing it for years and have gotten rid of it. In essence, we are saying that our universities are full of unskilled university students, while thousands of employees have university degrees they cannot defend.
“We are not surprised, though. Both federal and state governments do not meet the best global standards in terms of funding the education sector. Only one or two states have made the education sector a priority. The effect is was a colossal loss in qualitative education.
“The instances of this decline in performance can be found in the results published by the West African Examination Board (WAEC) in recent years. Only 28.58 percent of the candidates obtained pass credit in five subjects, including English and General Mathematics. WASSCE 2015 exam. 38.58 percent passed the courses in 2016, while the percentage dropped to 26.01 percent in 2017
“Things went so badly that a nameless Nigerian calling himself ‘graduate’ published an embarrassing message on Facebook in 2018 in which he said:” It is very deep humility without telling the public, friends and family … My result yesterday 04/30/2018 at around 14:00 with a total of 3.44 CGPA. I am now a graduate. “The way he achieved this score remains a mystery, but at least he managed to expose the rot in the system.
“Only three Nigerian universities were included in the 2019 World University of Higher Education ranking on 1,250 tertiary education institutions worldwide. Only one (Ibadan University) was on the 2018 list and ranked at 801 of 1,000 universities The same university was the only one among the 800 best universities in the world in 2016 and its position was 601. No Nigerian university reached the 2015 list published by the Center for World University Rankings.The United States had only eight in the top ten.
“This generally poor performance has led to the loss of parental trust in Nigeria’s school system and those who can afford it have asked for their children to be admitted off the coast of this country. He also reported his desire to cut corners, especially from parents who are skinny in integrity but fat in indecency. ”
MURIC, however, praised the executive director of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, for the gigantic progress made by the examining body and for cleaning the system.
“It must also be admitted that Oloyede’s results are a reflection of the deeply rooted integrity of the number one citizen, President Muhammadu Buhari. It would have been another cup of tea if the president himself was questionable in nature. Those who are still cynical about it at the change of mantra they have another fool to break.
“In our concluding remarks, we ask for the public parade of professional exam writers. The law should be allowed to run its full course, regardless of the type of ox. The owner of the infamous Lagos CBT center, whose two children are involved , he must face the wrath of the law, while he and his CBT center must be banned for life. “He is a disgrace to parenthood” the statement added.
