JAMB reschedules conference on equal opportunity of access to higher education

The (Jamb) Joint Admission and Matriculations Board’s Equal Opportunity Group has rescheduled its first national conference on “Equal Opportunity of Access to Higher Education in Nigeria.’’

The conference, earlier scheduled to hold September 26 and 27, has been rescheduled for Sept. 25 and 26, the exam body says.

The conference has as its theme; “Towards increasing equal opportunity of access to higher education in Nigeria’.’

The new dates were announced in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by the Acting Director, Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

Benjamin said the change in date became expedient as there was the possibility that the federal government could declare Wednesday, Sept. 27 a public holiday.

“The Board regrets all inconveniences occasioned by this change in date, it calls on all stakeholders, including all heads of tertiary institutions, heads of examination bodies, WAEC, NECO and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board to take note.

“Others to take note are the National Board for Arabic and Islamic Studies, commissioners for education, heads of Schools of Persons with Disabilities and deans of Faculties of Education.

“Also to take note of the change of dates are heads of Departments of Special Education, leaders and members of the Association of Persons with Disabilities and the general public.

“All other information pertaining to venue and time remains as earlier announced,’’ Benjamin stated.

He added that the conference is aimed at boosting the enrolment opportunities of persons with disabilities in the Nigerian tertiary education system.
