JAMB Registrar Faults ASUU's Strike, Says It Is Unnecessary



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)Registrar,
Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has faulted the ongoing nationwide strike in Nigeria's public universities by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), describing the industrial action as unnecessary.

Oloyede who was speaking on Friday in Ilorin during the flag-off and presention of equipment, facilitated by JAMB, at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), urged the leadership of the ASUU to call off the strike industrial action 

The former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin expressed concern that the protracted and incessant strikes by unions in the nation’s tertiary institutions was capable of causing irreparable damage, on not just the students, but also the nation.

Oloyede asked both the government and the unions to find ways of putting an end to the “unnecessary strike”.

The registrar explained that the intervention of JAMB in the area of healthcare delivery was to support the government’s efforts aimed at addressing the huge medical infrastructural gap in the country

His words ,“JAMB will continue to prune down its expenses through prudent management, adoption of relevant cost-saving technology, and other efficiency-strategies.

“This is to free up resources to support major stakeholders such as the tertiary health and educational institutions in order to uplift the health and educational institutions,” Oloyede stated .
