released some important criteria which should be used by it’s registration body, to appoint its partners for the registration of candidates and the requirements for the candidates to get registered.
While speaking to our correspondent in Abuja, Nigeria, the JAMB UTME examination body’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Fabian Nnenche, disclosed, that this particular decision by the body, to stop roadside cybercafés from registering candidates for the examination was to address the cases of corruption identified so far by the body, where thousands of candidates complain about been scammed by several roadside cafes, where they’ll collect their money, and will never register them.
THE PRO also disclosed to our correspondent, Faith Paul, that some parts of the conditions for accrediting cybercafés for the registration were that each centre must have the following:
A minimum of 160 computer terminals,
Durable power storage facilities, among others.
Mr. Fabian Nnenche went on to say, that the UTME body was aware of the fact that parents could no longer obtain scratch cards and register their wards personally because of the need for biometric machines, but assured them that the about 400 registration centres which have been accredited nationwide will be enough to take care of the population of candidates who will be registering for the exercise.
