JAMB Suspends National Identification Number (NIN) As Requirement For UTME 2020

jamb suspends nin

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) management board has officially announced the suspension of the National Identification Number used for registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME.

According to information shared by the registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this important message while briefing journalists in Abuja on Saturday, said the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers and not put them through unnecessary stress.

The registrar further disclosed that the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced at some JAMB registration centres.

Professor Ishaq Oloyede however, asked candidates to disregard the use of NIN for the 2020 registration and strictly comply with other procedures for JAMB registration. The registrar, however, disclosed that JAMB will consider the use of NIMC for the 2021 JAMB registration.

Don’t forget that the JAMB board last year, had disclosed that from 2020, candidates will register for its examinations with their national ID number to solve the challenges of multiple registrations which they can use to infiltrate the system.
