JAMB reveals number of registered candidates with 5 days to deadline

JAMB has disclosed that about 1,512,739 candidates have been registered in the ongoing UTME/DE registration as of March 19th, 2022. This was contained in the weekly bulletin of the board. Prospective candidates are to note that the registration deadline remains March 26th.

The Registrar, over the weekend, while on a monitoring visit to some of the CBT centre in Kano  noted the low turnout of candidates in the various centres and enjoined prospective candidates to come out and register saying the Board would not extend the registration exercise.

The Registrar, who had witnessed the low turnout of candidates at some of the centres visited, decried the situation whereby candidates who refused to  come out to register in the meantime,  would turn around to swamp the registration centres at the close of registration to demand extension of the exercise. He had noted that there were  only one or two candidates waiting to be  registered at these centres, which are  equipped with over 20 registration points  and capacity to register more than 300  each day.

While addressing the press later at the Board’s Zonal Office, Kano, the Registrar  explained that it was practically  impossible for the Board to contemplate  extending the registration period owing  to the intense negotiations involved in  arriving at the current arrangements.

He took advantage of the monitoring exercise to inspec t the ongoing  construction work at the Board’s Zonal  Office which has been stalled by the  fluctuations in the price of construction  materials.

The Registrar noted that like the mega centres being constructed in Kaduna with  the Board’s IGR, the contractors have requested variation of the contract value  and requesting price fluctuations beyond  the 20% allowable by law for Agencies, a  situation which has made it necessary to  seek the approval of the Federal  Executive Council.
