Dr. Omole, who expressed his anger at the deplorable standard of education in the country urged the minister of education to sack the Registrar of the Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, adding that universities should be allowed to set a new standard of admitting students.

He condemned Prof. Oloyede over the cancellation of Jamb mock exam.

“Since Prof Oloyede did not consider it appropriate to resign after failing the whole nation, I think the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, should not hesitate to sack him.

“Why will anybody make life difficult for candidates whose parents are struggling to live under the terrible condition the government has made them to live in?

“This is where people are duping Nigerian children. This is a total failure. Students must have at least three months for registration, its procedure must be open and their options to public universities must not be limited to serve the agenda of the proprietors of private universities”, Dr. Omole said.
