2019 General Elections Won’t Affect 2019 UTME Exam – JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede
The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board ( JAMB ), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has disclosed that the 2019 general elections would not affect the board’s 2019/2020 examination.
According to him, there will be no need for a shift in the examination date because of the 2019 general elections as INEC has done well by giving a prior notice six months ago and JAMB has adjusted appropriately.
Oloyede decried the rate at which candidates, who were not qualified to write the examination applied for it, thereby, causing what he described as “unnecessary luggage” on the board.
He said that the examination body would adopt stiffer measures to check incidences of unqualified candidates from applying and writing the examination for the 2019/2020 admission exercise.
The JAMB registrar said the body would begin the 2019/2020 examination process by October, promising that the procedure for the next examination would be better than the last one.
