The board has continually complained over admissions done outside the Central Admissions Processing System.

Commenting on the development, the Registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said, “The ASUU chairman once went on air to say that some vice-chancellors were the ones conducting admissions. I told him to bring me the name of any of the vice-chancellors conducting the admissions.”

“There is a need for transparency in the conduct of admissions. Over time, you see some institutions favouring other candidates based on personal relationships with top officials, among others. CAPS introduced by JAMB has been going a long way in ensuring that there is a reduction in the rate of illegal admissions. “The institutions that continue to engage in such should be punished and not allowed to go Scott free,” Ayodamola said.
