JAMB opens up on extending registration
The Joint Administration and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said 2023 registration would not be extended.
Speaking in Ilorin, Kwara State, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede said intending candidates should not wait for extension before doing the needful.
He said, “we have gone halfway. You see some of our people will come to register at the last hour thinking that there will be an extension.
“There is no room for extension. We had made provision for the registration of 100,000 per day. And now we are registering 60,000 per day. So they are the ones not coming up.”
Also, the board said it won’t allow CBT centres to violate rules, the registrar stressed that “We won’t allow any individual to divert or pervert the cause of the system. As far as I am concerned other centres are already aware that there is no sacred cow. Anybody who crosses our line would be dealt with according to the rules.
”We have been fair to them. We will continue to make the business profitable for the CBT centres, but we will not allow them to extort the candidates.
“We do not expect any extension. As of yesterday, Sunday 445,081 candidates had registered. And we are expecting about 1.8 million candidates to register.”
