JAMB Moves Cross River Office to Akwa Ibom

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Cross River State has moved its office to Akwa Ibom State.

The movement of the office, was as a result of the instruction from the registrar, Prof Is’haq Oloyede.

The registrar who visited the office at the premises of the Cross River Transport Regulatory Agency (CTRA), popularly known as ‘100 Marian’ was dissatisfied at the office as better parts of the premises were overtaken by heap of impounded vehicles.

“The usage of CTRA to park impounded vehicles may have irked the registrar as they was no space for workers and others including students and parents to have access to the offices” a worker who pleaded for anonymity said..

“This was the reason when the registrar arrived Calabar to grace the WAEC 56th Annual General Meeting and award ceremony and stopped over only to be embarrassed at the sight and state of our office.

“These are essentially the reasons, he gave the order that since the state government has not responded to their appeals for a conducive office we should move the Calabar office immediately to Akwa Ibom State” he stated.

“This morning students groups have come here with placards, pleading that the Cross River JAMB office should not move. We understand they also stormed the governor’s office for same reason,’” a security office said.

The state governor, Prof Ben Ayade in his addressing speech to WAEC on Thursday at its AGM, had guaranteed that his administration will continue to give full supports to educational agencies in the state.

Consequently, security men were seen at the JAMB office in Calabar to prevent miscreants from taking over the properties as a result of the protest carried by parents and students over the relocation of the office.

The armed men from the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) as well as officials of JAMB said the office was no longer favourable for administrative operations because of the activities of criminals and state agency called Cross River Transport Regulatory Agency (CTRA), popularly known as ‘100 Marian.’
