When Goodness Shekwbyalo Thomas from Niger State did not get admission to study medicine despite the fact that her Jamb and Post UTME scores were high, there was condemnation of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB)and the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria.
The candidate who scored an aggregate of 288 after scoring 302 in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and 274 in ABU post-UTME screening, became a case in reference of discrimination on the bases of religion and ethnicity. But the registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, in a press conference to explain the reason for denying the candidate admission for medicine, said that evidence showed that the candidate caused the confusion, initially.
Mr. Oloyede said the candidate caused the confusion when she changed her course from Medicine to Anatomy. He said when the candidate was asked why she changed the course, she said someone in ABU told her to change it, but could not provide evidence.
The JAMB boss said if she had not changed to Anatomy, her name would have been on number 36 of 80 on the merit list of ABU for Medicine. Changing to Anatomy made her number one on the merit list of ABU for Anatomy.
It was revealed that despite the change to Anatomy, ABU still reversed and offered her admission in Medicine. Mr. Oloyede said the girl, Miss Thomas, did not tell the world that ABU eventually offered her Medicine.
Meanwhile, JAMB officials have said that the board would help her change to another university if she feels uncomfortable going to ABU, considering the controversy her admission has generated.
