Breaking: JAMB recants, cancels NIN registration for UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has just announced the suspension of National Identification Number (NIN) as requirement for registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This was revealed by JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, while briefing journalists in Abuja on Saturday.

However, Oloyede said the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers before 2021.

He said the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced at some centres.

He asked candidates to disregard the use of NIN for the 2020 registration and strictly comply with other procedures for the registration.
