The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria has commended JAMB for successfully conducting Police recruitment exercise - The group said JAMB deserves commendation rather than condemnation - According to YOWICAN, fact-finding mission on the exercise revealed JAMB fairness and transparency The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has said that the allegation against the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) compelling candidates to write Arabic subject in the police recruitment exercise is untrue. YOWICAN rather said the examination body deserves “commendations not condemnation” for carrying out the recruitment exercise effectively, Premium Times reports. In a statement released on Monday, June 11, Daniel Kadazai, the president of YOWICAN said a fact-finding mission by the association to know the truth regarding the inclusion of Arabic from JAMB revealed fairness and transparency during the exercise. 

"In as much as we came with complaints, as Christians whose Bible teaches love and truth, we must equally promote love for one another and also say things the way we see them. I know a lot of people will antagonise this statement but this is the truth." He also urged the JAMB's the registrar to use his influence as a strategic personality to help address government policies and appointments that seem to favour one side of the religion in Nigeria. “Most of the directors in JAMB are Christians, some are also deacons in their respective churches and they told us in confidence that they set the examination. 

“Irrespective of what has been written before, we are writing this to address the public especially the Christians that we have gone there, investigated and the allegations are not true. Even when you see the results, there is no Arabic there," Kadazai said. But in his reaction, the spokesperson for CAN, Adebayo Oladeji, said the association was not satisfied with JAMB’s explanation on the matter. He said the association rejects the alleged introduction of Arabic in the exercise. Also speaking, the JAMB registrar Ishaq Oloyede said the whole scenario was misinterpreted. “I am disturbed that Nigeria has degenerated to a level where we don’t trust each other anymore even amongst religious leaders, no candidate was instructed or made to forcibly attempt any questions in Arabic,” Oloyede said. He said the questions in contention were not part of the exam but were simply included as ‘dummies.’ PAY ATTENTION: Install our latest app for Android, read best news on Nigeria’s #1 news app Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the Christian association had called for the cancellation of the aptitude test which was organised by JAMB. CAN said such move is a violation of the Constitution and the secular nature of the country, to mandate both Christians and Muslims to answer questions in Arabic language. The association said alleged incident is another dirty slap on the 1999 Constitution and a deliberate attempt to undermine Christians.
