Save is from the Hands of Jamb and Mr.Adamu Adamu

19 July 2016, 14:12

Hello to Everyone! I'm Ismail Ahmed from a village called Tsaure in Kano State. I came from a poor family but that doesn't discourage my father to send me school.

I want to share my sad story with lovely Nigerians about how JAMB is trying to destroy our futures with the help of Minister of Education, Mr.Adamu Adamu.

2nd March 2016 is unforgettable day in the history of my life! Is the day all my hardworking and sleepless night to pass my UTME Examination was frustrated and rewarded with failure by Jamb. The Exams i should write at 2pm was delayed to 5pm. We were left helplessly inside the scorching sun for JAMB to screen us. Some of the candidates were screened why some are just allowed to enter due to time factor.

It's really unfortunate that we were left with substandard computers to write the Exams. The most painful part of it, is how the Generator just shut down! After spending only 50mins. It took the operators good 30mins before they fixed the problem.

This happened twice during the Examination and we were left with little time to answer more than 200 questions out of 300 Objectives questions. What surprise me most is how some selected candidates were assisted with the answers by a agent inside the hall. which after the Exams, i later found out that those candidates paid for special centres.

This is injustice! The following day when my scores were sent to me, i wasn't surprise when i scored 230 due to the problem we faced. but what surprised me most is how i was given the highest scores in English Language when i didn't answers most of the questions due to shortage of time.

Why my best subject Biology, which i'm 100% sure i won't score below 46 out of the 50 objectives questions was given the lowest scores. All those problems ranging from irregularities, substandard computers, power failure, cheating, wrong tally of scores not only happened in Kings Garden Brigade Exams centre Kano but almost part of the country experience some of those problems.

Which the Registrar of Jamb, Prof. Dibu blamed those Exam centres that hired equipment to passed the accreditation. If it's in develop country, prof. Dibu would have been summoned to explain it.

But it's really unfortunate that Jamb and Mr.Adamu is trying to silent those victims of 2016 UTME. This are the questions i keep asking myself! Why will Mr.Adamu just woke up one day to destroy the future of those candidate that were victimised by JAMB? How can we be given admission with those low scores that Jamb unjustly gave us? Why will Mr. Adamu scrapped post-UTME after 2016 UTME Examinations instead of before 2016 UTME Examination?

You can't just change the rules of a game when the game is still going. It's either you change the rules before or after game. Why will Mr.Adamu just cancelled post- UTME without consultation with the victims of 2016 UTME and Universities?

Why will Mr. Adamu not go deeply into the root of the issue? Why will Mr.Adamu won't make a research in Universities to find out if those best students in 100level and 200level are the ones with highest scores in Jamb or low scores in Jamb? Why is Mr. Adamu trying to leave us in the hands of a substandard Board?

Is Mr.Adamu not aware of Miracle centres where your money will gives you a very high score in Jamb? Is Mr.Adamu not aware of some special centres where lazy students pay huge sum of Money without even sitting for the Exams to get good grades in WAEC and NECO? But today, those are the kind of people Mr.Adamu wants to favour in getting admission not those that are hardworking.

If not because of post-UTME, most of the poor helpless brilliant masses wouldn't have gotten admission.

This will only encourage corruption in the system. I'm pleading with Mr.President, Senators, House of Reps, Governors and Nigerians to please save us in the hands of Jamb and Adamu Adamu. please share it so that those 2016 UTME victims will get Justices!! Thank you! #ISTANDWITHPUTME
