The Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has
concluded arrangements for the presentation
of awards to five tertiary institutions at its
maiden edition of the 2018 National Tertiary
Admissions Performance Merit Award (NATAP-
M).

The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr
Fabian Benjamin, made the disclosure to the
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday
in Lagos.

According to Benjamin, the Vice-President,
Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, would be doing the
presentation on Thursday in Abuja.

The JAMB’s spokesman noted that the award
was in recognition of the institutions’
compliance to admission guidelines.

“We want to honour these institutions for
doing what is expected of them in the past
years, in terms of admission performance.

“Again, we looked at the most subscribed, the
number of foreigners admitted, gender
balancing and national spread.

“You know some tertiary institutions will like to
localise their admission by narrowing it down
to candidates from their locality,” Benjamin
told NAN.

“All such practice does not give our
institutions the deserved exposure and
competition as obtained in institutions in other
climes.

This is also partly the reason such institutions
cannot attract foreign scholars.

“It is also the reason why most of them find it
difficult to break through in terms of global
ranking, aside research and other
considerations.

We want to encourage our institutions to be
having global out look and we believe that with
this kind of awards, things will change for
good.”

He said that expected at the award ceremonies were Pro Chancellors, Vice-
Chancellors of Universities, as well as
Provosts of Colleges of Education and Rectors
of Polytechnics. (NAN)
