Prospective JAMB applicants of the 2021 UTME should link their applications to their National Identification Number (NIN).
This is coming after the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Identification and Management Commission (NIMC) entered right into a partnership to have the NIN as part of JAMB’s registration standards.
NIMC’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kayode Adegoke who published that the settlement was once made previous this year, defined that the NIN was once no longer used within the 2020 examinations because of technical hitches.
He on the other hand maintained that the technical problems were resolved and confident that the Commission was in a position to capture the entire applicants because all vital steps have been taken.
According to him, his conviction stems from the new licensing of 203 agents through the Federal Government who’re due to begin work in an instant after Christmas celebrations. He stressed out that with this, the NIMC can capture the over two million UTME applicants.
He additional instructed potential UTME applicants to make the most of the considerable time to get their NIN so that you can keep away from rush and failure to register.
Meanwhile, JAMB has defined that it didn’t signal any contract with the NIMC at the obligatory use of NIN as a demand for its UTME registration.
JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin clarified that what JAMB signed with the agency was a partnership and no longer a freelance.
The Board insisted that it simply agreed to forge a partnership with the NIMC at the obligatory registration of its UTME applicants.
