COVID -19: JAMB Suspends Two Staffs ,
Banned Two Students For Violating The COVID-19 Protocols

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended two of its staff and banned two candidates from its processes for violating precautionary measures to mitigate the spread of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

Their suspension followed a suprise visit by the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede to the Professional Testing Centre (PTC). The four individuals ran foul of the protocols when they refused to wear protective face masks provided to curtail the spread of
the virus. It would be recalled that the Board had circulated series of advisories containing explicit instructions on the
necessity of adhering to extant protocols.
These advisories were not only aimed at mitigating the risk of contagion for individual staff but also to safeguard the
lives of their fellow staff. The Board, in a statement, asserted that the suspension became necessary in order to send the right signal to all staff and clients alike that it will not tolerate any act that would expose people to unnecessary risks. The punitive action also underscored the seriousness with which the Board view adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
The statement also reiterated the fact that the Board had, among other measures, made available pieces of washable high quality face masks to each staff to eliminate excuses for non-compliance.
In addition, the Board provides alcohol-based sanitisers, hand washing facilities as well as prescribed the adoption of other non- pharmaceutical measures to curb the spread of the virus in line with the prescriptions of the various relevant agencies of government.
The statement added that the concerned staff would face the Board’s Disciplinary Committee. In addition, the Head of the Office under whose supervision the staff were working would also be queried for negligence and dereliction of duty for failure to adequately supervise the affected staff.
Furthermore, the statement reiterated to all staff nationwide that the Board would not tolerate any violation of the extant protocols on COVID-19 and that supervisory officers would also be held responsible for non- enforcement and non-
compliance of staff who circumvent laid down rules and regulations.
The Board noted that all the measures
put in place to protect staff from unnecessary exposure to the virus are all user-friendly and wondered why anyone
would want to expose him or herself and others to the virus.
The statement enjoined all Directors, State Coordinators and Heads of Units to ensure strict compliance of both staff and clients alike.
