Mmesoma: Reps order to JAMB open encouragement of exam malpractice — MURIC

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has expressed its disagreement with the recent directive from the House of Representatives to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The order instructs JAMB to refrain from taking any disciplinary action against Miss Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme, who has been accused of falsifying her JAMB score.

MURIC argues that “such a directive from lawmakers openly encourages exam malpractice, describing it as condoning laziness, indiscipline, and dishonesty.”

The organization believes that the motion put forward by Hon Awaji-InombekAbiante (PDP-Bayelsa) during the plenary in Abuja is inappropriate and unacceptable to well-meaning Nigerians.

MURIC finds it alarming that the representatives would support an action that could potentially ruin the prospects of the country’s youth.

In a statement issued by Professor Ishaq Akintola, the executive director of MURIC, the organization expresses its bewilderment at the motion to shield the JAMB registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede.

They consider it shameful that “some adults are defending exam malpractice and celebrating fraudulent activities.”

MURIC further criticizes those who rely on illicit means, such as magic centers, to help their children during exams, as it undermines the values of hard work, self-reliance, and transparency.

MURIC questions the notion that a 19-year-old girl should still be considered a child, emphasizing that this argument goes against their principles.

They also express disappointment in a human rights group that disregards caution and tarnishes the integrity of Professor Ishaq Oloyede, whom they regard as a symbol of transparency, honesty, and accountability.
