A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Abdulraheem Olajide Jimoh representing Lagos Mainland Federal Constituency has disclosed that adequate preparation coupled with prayers bring about success in an examinations, urging candidates preparing for 2017 Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to shun malpractices.
The lawmaker said this in Lagos during one day JAMB seminar for students organised by his counterpart, Hon. Nurudeen Olaitan Akinwunmi representing Ifako/Ijaiye Feferal Constituency.
According to him, there is no need for students writing same xamination for two or three times if there is adequate preparation. “There is also need for us to prepare our students while my colleague has done,” he said.
He therefore advised candidates who are preparing to write 2017 JAMB to shun any form of examination malpractices and be committed to what they are doing, adding that it would make them to be a great leader in future.
In his speech, Hon. Akinwunmi stated that passing a qualifying examination requires more than being brilliant. “Being sound in the combination of subjects on which questions are to be set may not necessarily translate to be admitted. There are so many issues involved.
“There are millions of brilliant candidates out there who have sat for JAMB two or three times and have not gotten admission. If you are ignorant on the new policy of JAMB, you are more or less an uneducated student, he said.
Speaking on why he organised the seminar, Hon. Akinwunmi stressed that the ultimate goal is to ensure that most candidates in his constituent pass this year’s JAMB.
“My belief is that while most parents can afford the cost of JAMB form, most parents, cannot afford to teach what you have been taught in this seminar”, he said.
