JAMB remits N5 billion to Nigerian govt; highest ever
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it will not condone multiple registration for Direct Entry and Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
The agency also said it had so far remitted more than N5 billion to government, the highest ever in the 40 years of its existence.
A statement signed by JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, said in Abuja on Sunday.
Mr. Benjamin described the act of multiple registration as a serious offence in the process of obtaining the Board’s application forms presently on sale.
He said that the warning had become imperative for people to know and understand that violation of such rule would attract sanctions.
“Candidates are to note that our advertisement for 2017 UTME clearly states the penalty for any candidate caught buying two forms.
“Members of the public are requested to note that any candidate who indulges in double registration will be caught by our software and disqualified.
