JAMB Orders ABU to Change Candidate's Course From Anatomy To Medicine

JAMB Orders ABU to Change Candidate's Course From Anatomy To Medicine

JAMB Orders ABU to Switch the Anatomy To Medicine Candidate Course.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede gave this directive in Bwari, Abuja at a review meeting with the representative of the Niger State Education Commissioner, Bellu Attahiru, the ABU Admission Officer, Haruna Ali Mohammed, Civil Society Organization representatives and the agency's top officials.

The girl and the parents who were absent from the meeting despite being invited alleged that even after scoring 302 in 2019 UTME she was denied admission to study medicine because she is a Christian.

While reviewing the girl's case during the meeting, however, it was discovered that ABU decided to peg its Merit List to two candidates per state to leave Shekwobyalo out of those shortlisted for medicine.

Despite the fact that it was established that Shekwobyalo was not discriminated against on religious or ethnic grounds, the JAMB Registrar, Oloyede said; it was incorrect for ABU to restrict its Merit List to two per province.

The JAMB Registrar stated on this basis that the board had decided to reverse its admission to Anatomy and directed ABU to notify her that it was offered to read Medicine. It's left to accept or reject her, though.
