Some students who wrote the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) Examination in April have protested over the outcome of the results, insisting that their scripts should be remarked.
Speaking on behalf of the students on Channels Television breakfast show Sunrise Daily, Obinna Ekulu explained that he failed JAMB after passing WAEC and NECO with (As) he said that he passed JAMB last year with a score of 267 and this year he got 167. He said all they ask for is a review of their script.
They also disagreed with the option JAMB officials gave saying they should pay N10,000 and come to Abuja for a review of their script.
Also speaking on the protest is a lawyer, Esuola Olagoke, who referred to the option given by the JAMB officials to the students as “Extortion”, he said the students deserve to get their papers remarked without having to pay anything.
He said the option of asking them to come to Abuja involves a lot including transportation, accommodation for some days which he says is not necessary.
Olagoke said the students wrote their exams in Lagos so the scripts should be remarked in Lagos, he insisted that whatever the problem is “is from JAMB and they should not be paying for their mistake”.
