JAMB 2015 Registration is extortion

23 October 2014, 13:35

It is a peaceful and quiet agitation that will attract the attention of every responsible leader because in these open letters and TV broadcast, we will highlight and tell the Nigerians openly the reasons why we should be allowed to be accredited to do the JAMB E-registration. Such reasons among others:

That, ICT Advancement is met for making things easy for the all but the rich and the poor and it is out rightly wrong for anyone or group of persons to make things difficult for the public in the name of advancing technology in any sector to exploit the public.

That, JAMB Registration Card has been designed to be sold for N4500, and there is an hidden N500, making a form N5000. Then, after registering this form with the help the offline machine which off course an advantage of advancement in technology, such registration will only be submitted upon the payment of N700/N800. Why must the managing citizens of this country be exploited this way, this is exploitation on the masses. Why technology?

Oversea School Applications online are access from comfort of our rooms, fill online and submitted as much as the application fee is been paid, why then won't we be allowed to access our own from the comfort of our Bathroom. (It needs to be easier)

That, we are not just Self-Employed but are creating job opportunities to many other Nigerian citizens who would have been roaming the street to commit one crime or the other if not for our effort to make needs meet, providing such job opportunities. Therefore, frustrating these Cafes/Entrepreneurial firms (small or big) is invariably a frustration to thousand of the Nigerian Youths hence encouraging Roaming the street.

That, we are self-employed citizens of this great country Nigeria. We chose to be entrepreneurs because we know that government alone will not and cannot be able to employ all citizens and we do not want to be roaming the street hopelessly.

These and as many more reasons we can send to the Public: The House of Senate, The House of Representatives and to the President.
