JAMB UTME Not Postponed – Registrar Says


Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has stated that the UTME examination scheduled for May 13 has not been postponed.

He made the clarification in a chat with newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

Oloyede therefore appealed to candidates to ignore such rumors, adding that candidates should not fail to sit for their exams tomorrow.

The Registrar, who disclosed that 120 prison inmates are part of the 1.7 million candidates that will sit for UTME, enjoined the candidates to go to their respective centres for the examination.

The registrar said that the examinations would still hold as scheduled except for those that have Seven Days Adventist service.

He also advised UTME candidates to always check their e-mails for further updates, noting that some candidates are fond of giving out their passwords and e-mail addresses to strangers in spite of several warnings from the board.

“Candidates should be aware of fraudsters who hide under cyber cafe operators to defraud innocent children.

“We have caught some of them while mischievously collecting money from candidates with the help of some security officers,’’ the JAMB boss said.
