Ogun State JAMB Coordinator Applauds Covenant e-Examination Centre as one of the Nation’s Best

The Ogun State Coordinator and Deputy Director with the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Mr. Hakeem AbdulHameed, has congratulated the Management of Covenant University for maintaining its status with the examination board as one of the nation’s e-examination centres.

Mr. AbdulHameed, who was on a familiarization visit to all higher education institutions in the state, said he decided to pay a courtesy call on the University’s Management and see the current level of compliance of the university’s admissions office with the JAMB admissions policy document.

The Board’s Deputy Director applauded the Management for making the university's computer-based examination centre one of the best not just in Ogun State but the nation at large, which has led the examination board to identify Covenant University as the most compliant both in processes and testing systems at the JAMB admission policy meeting last year.

The Registrar of Covenant University, Mrs. Regina Tobi-David, assured the leadership of JAMB of the readiness of the University to continue partnering with the examination body to conduct examinations under the best and most secure conditions for those seeking admission to tertiary education.

Mrs. Tobi-David noted that the University’s ICT centre just underwent an upgrade with the required resources put in place to make the 2023 JAMB exam registration a seamless exercise for the next admission window.

In his remark, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abiodun H. Adebayo, said Covenant University’s relationship with JAMB has been very cordial over the years, and the University will continue to hold the examination body in high esteem.

Professor Adebayo commended the leadership of Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the Chief Executive Officer of JAMB, for the transparency he has brought to bear on the operations of the board. "The honesty, integrity, and transparency he has injected into the body is a testament to the quality of leadership at the helm of the organization," he added.

Professor Adebayo said Covenant has graduated over 20,000 students since its inception, and they are all doing well in their various fields, be it academics, business, politics, or fintech, and all these, he said, couldn’t be achieved outside of adherence to JAMB policies as they guide admission of students.

According to him, "our compliance level as a university is second to none, because as we are driving compliance in one area, we ensure it covers all aspects of our university operations," he added.

Furthermore, he assured Mr. AbdulHameed of Covenant’s unwavering desire to remain a progressive partner with the examination body, while appreciating the effort of the State Coordinator of JAMB in ensuring that the University’s e-examination centre is one of JAMB’s approved testing venues, and promised the Management’s unflinching readiness to work with the body to deliver on the mandate of both institutions.

Present at the courtesy visit were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olujide Adekeye; Director, Financial Services, Pastor Olugbenga Kiki; Director, Vice-Chancellor’s Office, Professor Omotayo Osibanjo; Director, Centre for Systems and Information Services, Engr. Boladele Akanle; and Administrative Officer in the Admissions’ Office, Mr. Gbotemi Folorunsho.
