JAMB Sanctions 11 Centres over Exorbitant Registration Fees


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has sanctioned 11 centres for charging candidates above the stipulated fee in the ongoing 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations registration.

Registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede at an interactive session with stakeholders in Abuja on Tuesday noted that the centres have had their licences withdrawn. 

Oloyede listed some of the centres whose licences were withdrawn for selling forms at N5,000 as Federal Polytechnics, Mubi; Adamawa; and Adazi-Nnukwu ICT/CBT.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

The Registrar who expressed worry over the proliferation of tutorial centres, said most of the centres engaged in fraud and corruption, during registrations and examinations.

Oloyede emphasised that 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.
