Oloyede, who said this in one of the centers in Lagos, where the exam was held, said those shortlisted for the entrance exam were those who had verified technical issues, reporting that the majority of the candidates were those in the 10 centers who had their results canceled due to examination malpractices.

He listed the 10 centers as follows – one each in Ebute Metta, Lagos; Benin, Edo State; Asaba, Delta State; five centers in Aba, Abia State; and two remaining centers in other eastern states.

Oloyede stated that the mop-up exam was re-conducted after the board investigated that there were few innocent candidates in those centers.

The registrar explained further that conducting the mop-up exam was not proof of failure on their part, but, “For the fact that we are bending backward to accommodate those who might have had one problem or the other, is an indication of strength, and that we are going to be accountable to God. We are conscious that no matter how few, there are some genuine candidates.”

While responding to the question on whether the entrance exam needed to hold despite the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), he noted that it would be unfair to delay the entrance exam because of the industrial action in some universities, while more than half of the number of the universities owned by private people are not on strike.

He explained that candidates’ results are still tenable no matter when universities resume academic sessions.

“For instance, if the University of Ibadan is on 2020/2021 session now, if they resume, they are going to start from there. Whoever is still waiting among their candidates, will still start the 2020/2021 sessions. Unless the university on its own decided to cancel a session,” he added.

He, however, appealed to the academic unions and the Federal Government to resolve issues of contention delaying getting the students back to classrooms.
