120 inmates to sit for JAMB
Over 120 inmates drawn from Ikoyi and Kaduna prisons are to sit for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) being conducted by Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
The Computer Based Test (CBT) will run for a week in different centres around the country.
JAMB Registra, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede while addressing newsmen yesterday in Abuja debunked news of the postponement of the examination.
He said that all candidates that have been invited for the exams this year must comply with the exam schedule sent to them, condemning the news making rounds of a postponement as the handiwork of mischief makers…
JAMB said did not postpone the examination date saying, “ it will take place as scheduled and all candidates that were invited for the exams will lose the chance to write the exams this year if they fail to show up at the scheduled time and date. Students should ignore the mischief makers sending messages of a postponement, it is not true.”
“Security agencies arrested a man who defrauded over 100 intending JAMB candidates, he registered the exams for them in a way that all the messages and notifications sent to the students entered into emails handled by him and when the students come to him, he prints it out and collects N10,000 from each student.” He disclosed.
