Don’t Register again – JAMB replies Candidates of Suspended Registration Centers
The suspension of 40+ JAMB registration centres for the 2020 UTME is bringing some discomfort to JAMBites. Speaking on this issue, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) decided to reassure candidates who registered for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in these blacklisted/suspended centers that there is nothing to worry about.
The Board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin on Friday, disclosed that there is absolutely no need for candidates who registered in these suspended centers to panic or consider going for another registration, as this would automatically disqualify them from participating in the board’s forthcoming examination.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) recently announced recently that it had suspended 41 registration centers out of 692 accredited in Nigeria, over issues like registration cyber fraud, extortion, and technical deficiency.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin disclosed and we quote below;
“We want to call on all candidates who registered in all of these affected centers not to panic or start considering going for another registration elsewhere.
The JAMB spokesperson further said that this will amount to double registration and candidates who registered twice, stand automatically disqualified for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. Their biometrics will indicate this on the day of their examination.
Benjamin said that the JAMB board wants affected candidates, to know that they have nothing to fear, as the security agents are already verifying the culpability of all those involved and at the appropriate time, and that their registration is assured.
