JAMB Puts UTME Registration on Hold Over NIN

Published

on

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has postponed the commencement of registration for its 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).

Fabian Benjamin, the board’s head of public affairs, broke the news to TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday.

He said the initial commencement date of April 8, which it had earlier fixed, was no longer possible due to some hitches.

Benjamin said the delay was caused by some unforeseen situations occasioned by its resolve to integrate the national identity number (NIN) as a compulsory requirement for enrollment.

According to him, the board will put up an advertisement to inform its candidates once procedures commence.

“We may start tomorrow or any moment from now. It’s just some little hitches. We have not advertised anything. Some people have done it but it’s not going smoothly as planned,” the JAMB spokesman said.

“It was supposed to start on August 8 but we have not finished our integration of the NIN.”

Ahead of the board’s 2021 UTME, Benjamin had earlier stated that “all admissions in the nation’s tertiary institutions for the 2020/2021 academic session would end by June 15.”

The decision, he said, had been reached after a virtual meeting with heads of tertiary institutions in the country.

JAMB Registrar Bans Parents From Entering UTME Registration Centres

Published

on

The Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, has ordered all CBT Centres across the country not to allow parents/guardians into the registration hall again.

A statement signed by JAMB Spokesman in Ilorin Office, Hassan Lawal, quoted Oloyede as saying that the decision was made after inspecting some of the registration centres in Kwara, which were overcrowded.

”The registrar said it has been discovered that the parents/guardians are always a distraction to both candidates and the centres and at the same time, congesting the halls by not following the COVID – 19 protocols,” Oloyede was quoted as saying.

Oloyede also advised parents/guardians to stop pushing the education of their wards faster than necessary.

 

“For example, a 14 or 15-year-old is not matured enough to undergo the process of registration and university pressure and are vulnerable to exploitation by scammers out there,” he said.

Oloyede also advised states Ministries of Education and relevant stakeholders who were saddled with the responsibility of enrollment of students into secondary schools to always ascertain the students’ true age before admittance into secondary schools.

Fradusters Hack Our Sites, Diverts Millions Of Naira – Jamb Registrar

Published

on

OVER N10 million meant to be paid to ad-hoc staff of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, as allowance has been hijacked into the accounts of over a dozen fraudsters who gained entry into the internet site of the board.

Prof Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this to newsmen, Wednesday, in Abuja, said the fraudsters altered profiles of the board’s ad hoc staff, diverting the money meant for their allowances.
According to him, the scam was uncovered after the board undertook a careful investigation, leading to the arrest of one Sahabi Zubairu from Takum in Taraba State, and several others.

Explaining that government policy “requires that monies meant for ad-hoc staff are paid directly into the accounts of the beneficiaries”, he regretted that the situation gave room to the challenge the board was encountering.

He decried the failure of the accounting department to detect the fraud by cross-checking the names on the accounts to ensure that they tallied with those listed on the website or owners of the codes.

The JAMB boss who noted that ad-hoc staff of the board have since been paid, however, assured that the stolen money will be recovered, as he vowed to hand perpetrators of the crime over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for further investigation and prosecution.
On how the fraudsters successfully gained access to the profiles of the ad-hoc staff, he explained that the fraudsters used key logger, a software that allows access to the profile of anyone who has logged in using a public cybercafé even after the person has logged out and gone.

Oloyede said Zubairu deleted the names of the original ad hoc staff and their telephone numbers and substituted them with his, adding that those affected include code number 313 and 312, among others.
At least ten of the scammers paraded by JAMB before journalists at its headquarters, in Bwari, Abuja, admitted to the crime saying they were lured into it by Zubairu.
