The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has conducted his 2022 staff Promotion Examination for members of staff who are due for promotion in 2022. Assessing the performance of staff after the release of results, the Registrar, JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, stated that no one can give what he or she does not have. This, he said, is especially true in relation to the performance of some of the staff particularly those vying for the directorate cadre, who took the promotion examination on Saturday, December 4, 2021. The Registrar, described the general performance as very encouraging especially for a Board that prides itself as a leading light in the examination industry. He, however, frowned at the performance of some individuals, whom he urged to buckle down so as not to give the Board a bad name. The Registrar, while expressing his disappointment with these individuals, said, “ I was deeply distressed and disappointed by the responses of some of the staff. It is very troubling to realise that a few of us do not know anything about our core function, which is admission. If you can call yourself a staff of the Board, you should be able to speak about the Board’s activities whenever you are called upon.” He said any staff aspiring to senior positions especially directorate cadre must be above board as well as be familiar with all that the Board is doing.” “The responses to certain questions by these few members of staff is not only shocking but also unbelievable. It is more worrying when these questions are practical processes within the Board.” On a general note, however, the Registrar commended the overall performance of staff and disclosed that he would not be deterred by the antics of the few ones who have decided to be laid-back in matters relating to their primary assignment. He further declared that the examination was an eye opener for the Board as more needs to be done. He noted that it was a good thing that in spite of everything, the Board was still able to see many good scores with only a few disappointing results. He, however, added that in line with the integrity mantra of the current leadership of the Board, once a person does not merit a position, he would not be given. Prof. Oloyede further announced that to stem the tide of unpardonable outings, the Management had decided that periodic trainings, seminars and assessments would be carried out on a regular basis by the Board at the Headquarters and in the Outstations on a monthly basis to keep the staff updated about their knowledge of the Board as well as periodic assessments which would be undertaken to determine the level of assimilation or awareness of their respective responsibilities. The examination was taken by no less than 644 out of the 656 staff who are qualified to sit the 2022 Staff Promotion Examination.
