Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint
Admission and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) says the 2017/2018 Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination
(UTME) will hold in May. Oloyede, who was speaking at the
2017 Nigerian Academy of Letters
Annual Lecture on Thursday in Abuja,
said there was delay in the sales of
the forms due to some logistics. He said that the board had eliminated
the use of scratch cards owing to the
fact that many students were victims
of extortion from cybercafe
attendants. FILE: CANDIDATES WRITING UTME IN ABUJA Oloyede said that the board was
putting in place strategies that would
ensure hitch-free conduct of the
examinations. He added that the board had
consulted with relevant examination
bodies to ensure there was no clash
in any examination. “We have observed that people are
selling fake forms but what we are
doing is to try to sanitise the system
and as soon as the sanitisation is done
we will start selling the forms. “In any case, JAMB has invited other
examination bodies, there will be no
clash but we want to hold the exams
when it is appropriate. “You also know that if we conduct
the examination in March, the result
will come out almost immediately but
the result cannot be used until August
or September. “So, we have to keep the results and
that will give room for people to be
thinking it’s possible to upgrade. “But, if we conduct our examination
very close to when the result is
needed the possibility or perceptions
for upgrading will not be there. “We need to reassure stakeholders
that those selling fake forms are
gone. We are not going to sell out
forms through the other
process.“We will start the sale of the
form and by May the examination will be conducted,’’ Oloyede
explained. He said that JAMB would use existing
banks for the sales of this year’s
UTME to prevent students from being
extorted. “There is no offline registration,
people extort students by collecting
money from them but the worst is the
mismatch of picture, data and
biometrics,’’ Oloyede said. He said that some Nigerians involved
in some of the shady deals had been
arrested and some were being
prosecuted. Oloyede called on Nigerians to be
patient as the forms would soon be
out for candidates to purchase.
