JAMB Collaborates with NiDCOM to Facilitate University Admission for Sudan Evacuees

JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) and NiDCOM (Nigerians in Diaspora Commission) have announced plans to assist Nigerian students evacuated from Sudan to be integrated into Nigerian universities. JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, stated during a meeting with NiDCOM Chairperson, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, that JAMB would provide necessary support to ensure the smooth transfer of these students to Nigerian institutions.

Oloyede empathised with the students, commending NiDCOM for their successful evacuation and assuring the students that JAMB would provide the necessary infrastructure and enablement for their accommodation and return to the Nigerian educational system. He also stated that there are procedures for the transfer of students, including the transcript, rules, and regulations.

He emphasized that Nigerian universities would not award certificates to students with less than two years of residency and stay in the university, and that procedures for the transfer would be done legitimately with the cooperation of the National Universities Commission and individual institutions.

Oloyede urged the students to comply with the stipulated procedures and avoid the mistakes of those who returned to the country over a year ago as a result of the war in Ukraine. He explained that if a student is studying a five-year program, they will start from year four in Nigeria, spending year four and year five. For example, if a medical student is in 600 level, they will be assessed by the Medical and Dental Council, and if their practical is okay, they will move to 500 level. They will do 500 level and 600 level and receive the certificate of the institution in Nigeria.

Dabiri-Erewa stated that 1,730 Nigerians had been evacuated from Sudan as of Tuesday, with a majority of them being students eager to continue their education in Nigeria. She added that institutions were willing to provide support and admit the students, and the key thing was to follow the process as stipulated by JAMB.

She emphasized that JAMB had assured them of providing the enabling environment and infrastructure for the students’ accommodation and return to Nigerian institutions. She urged the students to get a letter from JAMB stating that they have been admitted, regardless of the year. All the information required for the transfer would be made available to prevent mistakes during the process.
