- Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board is set to conduct a recruitment test for the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC)
- The board said the patronage by FRSC resulted from the success JAMB recorded in the recent conduct of recruitment test for the police
- JAMB advised prospective candidates for the examination to adhere strictly to instructions to avoid unfounded speculations
Few days after it conducted a test for applicants seeking recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force, JAMB is set to conduct a similar test for the FRSC.
The board’s head, media and information, Fabian Benjamin, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, May 27, in Lagos.
Benjamin said that the patronage by FRSC resulted from the success the board recorded in the recent conduct of recruitment test for the police.
“The corp marshal was at the board a few days ago, where he expressed confidence in the conduct of such third party examination by the board. He solicited for a partnership with the board to conduct the corp’s examination coming up soon.
“The examination is for three cadres - officers, marshal inspectorate and road marshal assistant cadres," Benjamin said.
He advised the prospective candidates for the examination to adhere strictly to instructions to avoid unfounded speculations.
”The board still finds it hard to believe speculations trailing the police recruitment examination that candidates were examined in Arabic alongside other subjects. Such rumours are not only misleading, but malicious and wicked.
“Let me state clearly that the candidates were tested on only English Language and nothing more," he told NAN.
The spokesman said that JAMB would continue to be transparent in examination conduct, adding that it would always give candidates equal opportunities.
According to him, the board has been equipped with human and materials resources to conduct hitch-free examinations for recruitment, promotion and other selections in the most transparent manner.
“It is because of the confidence that organisation such as the EFCC, West African College of Surgeons and others have in our process that we conducted similar examinations for them in the past,” Benjamin said.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the examination board had on Saturday, May 26, refuted the rumour which claimed that candidates for the police recruitment exercise sat for an examination in Arabic.
The spokesperson for JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, said the board examined the candidates in the English Language only, and that no one wrote examinations in any other subject or language.
It is recalled that the police recruitment candidates wrote the qualifying examination nationwide on Friday, being a part of the series of tests for their enlistment into the Nigeria Police Force.
