The joint admission and matriculation board has debunk publication in a leading newspaper of Monday, 21 June, 2021, that says the use of national identification number as a prerequisite for it’s UTME and Direct entry examinations has affected it’s revenue generation capacity.
In a statement, the board’s head of media and protocol, Benjamin Fabian says, rather the board is pleased with the wonderful contribution NIN has brought to the UTME and direct entry registration process by helping in eradicating all forms of Examination mal-practice.
Adding that JAMB is not a revenue generation agency nor purported to be one.
the Board he says greatly appreciates the partnership with NIMC which has led to the inadvertent benefit of revealing the actual number of candidates that registered for the examinations annually.
Noting that the Board having a realistic number of candidates sitting its examination is a major achievement which only the partnership with NMC has made possible.
Therefore, the Board affirms its resolve not to ever compromise on the integrity of its processes on account of generating fat operating surpluses.
