The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, has said the board is not considering an extension of registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) over the Naira redesign.
JAMB Registrar, Professor Is-haq Oloyede made this statement recently.
Recall that the board had announced in December 2022 that UTME registration would commence on Saturday, 14 January 2023, and end Tuesday, 14th February 2023.
Meanwhile, Oloyede during inspections of Computer Based Tests centers in Osogbo, Osun State, on Friday declared that the Naira redesign and its withdrawal policy would not force the board to shift the deadline of February 14th, 2023 for registration.
He explained, “We are not considering any extension of the registration deadline because anybody who is withdrawing money is the one not following our instructions. You transfer money, when you do that, you get the pin, we are not selling physical pins.
“We also negotiate with CBN for E-wallet and the E-wallet is interacting with all the agencies, you don’t need to touch money to buy or procure the pin, it is not an excuse at all because we are E-compliant.”
