The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) said its attention “has been drawn to certain falsehoods being peddled by one Maxwell Akwuruoha, who is parading himself as the purported President of the Computer Based Centers Proprietors Association in Nigeria, against the person of the Registrar of Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, Prof. Is’haq Oloyede and on the integrity of the teeming Nigerian Youth.”
NYCN in a statement by its President Sukubo Seraigbe Sukubo, made available to journalists, Thursday, in Abuja said Akwuruoha, “whose status as a self -appointed President of a body of CBT Centers’ Owners has been summarily denied by several proprietors of CBT Centers, dared to suggest that Prof. Oloyede was executing a plot ‘to undermine CBT operators to build JAMB mega centers across the country’.”
According to the statement “The National Youth Council frowns at the self -serving attempt by Akwuruoha to drag the Nigerian youths into his well deserved travails and shall not tolerate any attempt, under whatsoever guise, to use the interests of the youth of Nigeria to advance personal interests by people who lack credibility.
The statement partly read “The management of JAMB, for the record, has performed creditably well and given the organization a human face, while making it easier for all stakeholders to access the Board that in turn onboard and resolve them satisfactorily.
“Therefore, the National Youth Council considers the position sold to the public by Maxwell Akwuruoha as repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience.
“It is necessary for the management of JAMB and the legitimate CBT Centres’ owners to take further steps in stripping Maxwell Akwuruoha of his pretences and attempt to speak on behalf of law-abiding CBT Centres’ owners across the country.
“This will serve as deterrence to others who might want to toe the unwholesome and puerile steps of Maxwell Akwuruoha to undermine the interest of a national examination body and take undue advantage of Nigerian youths.”
