Latest Politics updatein nigeria

The 2023 Registration Monitoring Team of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), led by its Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, was in Kano State earlier this week, where it apprehended the registration officers of some approved Computer-Based Test (CBT) Centres for registration violations.

In one case, a corps member working at the Federal College of Education, Kano, and employed by the College PTDF-ICT CBT Centre, as well as a graduate of Engineering who also works at the Centre, were apprehended after using one of their fingers to make up the missing digit in the registrations of some candidates.

The team caught four other registration officers at the Butale Information Technology CBT Centre.

All arrested registration officials would be investigated thoroughly and brought to justice per the applicable identity theft legislation.

The team was in Lagos earlier to keep an eye on the registration process there. In Lagos, the team told four ePIN vendors to stop working immediately because they were extorting innocent candidates taking part in the nationwide 2023 UTME registration exercise.

Despite JAMB’s permitted fee of N5,700, one of the e-pin vendors was suspended for charging N7,800 for registration forms.

The Registrar said that what these vendors did was very bad, especially since one of the major and well-known banks was involved.
