JAMB withdraws 11 centres’ licences for charging above N4700


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has withdrawn licences from 11 centres for charging candidates exorbitant amount in the ongoing 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations registration.

Registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, made this known at an interactive session with stakeholders in Abuja on Tuesday.

The registrar listed some of the centres whose licences were withdrawn for selling forms at N5,000 as Federal Polytechnics, Mubi; Adamawa; and Adazi-Nnukwu ICT/CBT.

Others are New Kings and Queens Bayelsa, for selling at N5,500; Brightfield Secondary School Delta, for selling between N6,000 and N8,000; A-Pagen Consolidated Port Harcourt, for selling at N5,000 and Influencial School Port Harcourt, for selling at N6,000.

Also included are Emkenlyn Computers, and Nneameka Secondary School Anambra.

Oloyede said the proliferation of tutorial centres was a major concern as most of the centres engaged in fraud and corruption, during registrations and examinations.

Oloyede said charging above the stipulated N4,700 for the 2020 UTME registration was illegitimate and would only destroy the nation; as it was an act of fraud and corruption.

NAN reports that the cost of the registration is N3,500, cost of materials is N500 and N700 for the CBT centres –  totalling N4,700. NAN
