A call has gone to all tertiary institutions in the country to be honest in their dealings with the Nigerian child especially on the issue of admissions.
Prof. Oloyede gave the charge on 23rd
June, 2022, at the maiden Matriculation/Capping Ceremony of the Department of Nursing Education, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The Registrar, who was represented by the Osun State Coordinator, Mr. Babatunde Jacob, said the primary purpose of
introducing the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) in 2017 was to away with primordial procedures in the admission processes. In his words: “It is disheartening today to still see some institutions opting for the crooked option that lacks transparencies or accountability through undisclosed admissions.”
Continuing, he disclosed that the Board had agreed to retroactively condone the admissions of candidates who were offered secret admissions by some tertiary institutions from 2017 to 2021 sequel to the noble intervention of the Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu. He, therefore, urged erring institutions to desist from such ignoble practice and comply with the Board’s directives that all admissions must be conducted through CAPS.
In his concluding remarks, the Registrar offered candid and fatherly advice to the matriculants as he enjoined them to concentrate on their studies and shun all forms of examination malpractices, which according to him, is capable of destroying their promising future.
In her remarks, the Director/HOD, School of Nursing Education, OAUTHC, Dr. Mrs. Aderonke Bosede Awosemo, charged the students to see themselves as the few chosen ones hence they should give their best to ensure that they excel in their studies.
