On Thursday, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) asked the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates to provide the details of any of its workers, who are involved in illegal financial transactions with them.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board stated that all fees should be paid by candidates into the board’s Treasury Single Account, while they also insisted that candidates must register for the National Identification Number which is a prerequisite to take the 2020 examination as stated before. The board stated this on its Twitter handle on Thursday 17th October, laying emphasis that candidates should visit the nearest NIMC office to have their data captured and registered.
JAMB said: “All payments for any of our JAMB services are to be made directly to the board’s Treasury Single Account. Please be duly informed that the board frowns at any form of financial dealings between candidates and its workers, especially illegal ones”.
“Candidates who are hereby involved in any financial transaction with any staff of the board should notify the board immediately and also provide proof of any useful information about such staff for necessary action. Furthermore, all candidates that wish to take the 2020 UTME must have the compulsory National Identification Number (NIN). All intending candidates are advised to visit the nearest NIMC office for their capturing and registration. The board would only register candidates that provide their National Identification Numbers.”
Finally, JAMB wishes all prospective candidates of the 2020 UTME the best of luck during their exams.
