Email Will No Longer Be Needed During Registration – JAMB



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has come out to say that mobile phone, not e-mail, will now be the only major requirement for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Direct Entry, DE, registration processes.

Registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the new system is to ensure that candidates’ information is not exposed to dubious cyber cafe operators and other criminal elements.

He added that the fraudsters recently altered profiles of the board’s ad hoc staff, diverting the money meant for their allowances, and that cannot be allowed to repeat itself.
