JUST IN: JAMB suspends use of NIN for UTME registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has suspended the use of the National Identification Number as a requirement for registration in the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The suspension also affected the Direct Entry registration for the year.

Announcing this at a press conference in Abuja on Saturday, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Isha-q Oloyede attributed the decision to what he called technical reasons.

The conference was attended by top management staff of the National Identification Management Commission, led by its Director-General, Aziz Aliyu.

The JAMB registrar cited ongoing difficulties being faced by candidates in the NIN registration, adding that the NIN requirement as a precondition for the UTME and Direct Entry registrations had been set aside for this year’s UTME and DE registrations.

Oloyede said the NIN would, however,  be a necessary requirement in the 2021 UTME and Direct Entry registrations.
