JAMB, NIPOST partners for CBT in rural areas

Published

on

The Joint Admission and Matricution Board (JAMB) and the Nigerian Postal Service will partner to deliver a Computer Based Test to dwellers of rural areas, the Postmaster General of the Federation, Bisi Adegbuyi, revealed.

The area to be covered includes Norther-West zone of Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Kebbi, Jigawa, Zamfara and Sokoto State.

Adegbuyi said this at the zonal strategic management retreat recently held in Kaduna.

The NIPOST helmsman added that agency had already established new technology in the rural areas to enhance bottleneck encountered by students in such areas while test are held.

Adegbuyi said the idea became necessary as most examinations now were being taken on the internet, noting that NIPOST remain relevant and there was no need to rewrite the story otherwise.

Insisting that NIPOST is rooted in rural areas and would soon launch into major technology capable of allowing Nigerians to sit for examinations in local places without need to travel over long distances.

“Technology has advanced to the level at which examinations and interviews are conducted online and NIPOST wants to be a part of it. For a long time, NIPOST has functioned as a mono-product organisation that focused mainly on mail. That is changing, as evident in our innovative product launch of October 9 and in the various initiatives that are currently going on,” Adegbuyi said.

He also spoke on the welfare of members of the staff of the agency. He noted that the success of the current move to reposition the agency depended largely on the welfare of the workers.

He stressed the need for the NIPOST to diversify and maintain quality in all respect, arguing that the current status of the agency was appalling and poor.

“We want to cut down on expenditure so as to conserve our resources and give quality services to our customers,” he added.

Earlier in his welcome address, the NIPOST’ Zonal Manager (Kaduna), Mr. Stephen Mbaya, said the essence of the retreat was to afford the management team the opportunity to brainstorm on how to share “knowledge on the restructuring bid and strategise on how to post the post to prosperity.”
