No NIN, No UTME registration, Policy by JAMB- No amount of “smear campaign” can prevent it from using the National Identity Management Number (NIM) in the conduct of its exams next year- Ishaq Oloyede, the board’s registrar said as he meets with CBT centres, technical advisors, and service providers at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Kaduna state earlier this week.
No national ID card number, no 2020 jamb registration
The board’s registrar said “Unless I’m wrong, over 40 per cent of our candidates have done their NIN registration and obtained their NIN while the 60 per cent or less remaining are about to get theirs.”
JAMB had earlier announced its partnership with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to clampdown on impersonation and other forms of exam malpractice ahead of its forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The use of NIM during the 2020 UTME, those benefiting from registration and exam frauds have continued to kick against the use NIMC for coming UTME registration Oloyede said.
The board had also reduced the number of available exam centres where candidates pay huge some of money to some individuals to write the exam for them.
“With the current campaign against NIMC, I could see deliberate efforts at running the commission down so that we can consider not collaborating with them. Those benefiting from registration scandals are mounting a campaign against NIMC,” he said.
“We are collaborating with NIMC jamb boss said.
They are upright and just last week, five staff were sacked because they collected bribe. So as you interact with NIMC, don’t have it in mind that you are interacting with corrupt people, no, they are not.
We advise all prospective jamb candidates to utilize this opportunity now and get their NIN before the commencement of the 2020 jamb registration.
