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, who earlier visited AUA Technologies Ltd CBT Centre, Kano;  Emirate College of Health Sciences and  Technology & Enterprenuership CBT  Centre, Kabuga Satellite Town, Kano, and the JAMB PTC, Zonal Office, however,  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.
