The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, hinted on Thursday that the board would approach relevant authorities to deploy drones during the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination.

The JAMB Registrar gave the hint at a stakeholders’ meeting held at the Congo Conference Hotel, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Kaduna State.

Oloyede had said during the first day of the meeting on Wednesday that fraudsters were tampering with the CCTV cameras at its centres for the purpose of cheating.

He had said the act was being perpetrated with the connivance of the board’s technical officials during the conduct of UTME.

He said the board had no fewer than 613 Computer-Based Test centres and that the drones in addition to the CCTV cameras would be deployed to checkmate those planning to perpetrate examination malpractices in all the designated centres for the 2020 UTME.

He also warned operators of tutorial classes to steer clear of the 613 CBT centres, noting that most of the tutorial class operators were not qualified and at the same time act as conduct for examination malpractices.

He warned that anyone caught aiding and abetting any candidate to cheat would be made to face the full wrath of the law.

“They are the centres for corruption in examination malpractices in the country,” he said.

This was just as he warned parents to keep away from  UTME centres, pointing out that parents too encouraged their children or wards to cheat during examinations.

He said the board would no longer tolerate such conduct coming from parents who were supposed to be the epitome of discipline in society.

“No third party is allowed,” he warned.

Oloyede also said only candidates that were biometrically verified would be allowed to sit for the 2020 UTME.

He added that the board would not tolerate makeshift CTB centers, saying that “centres must be dedicated to the examination and must be within the MTN or Airtel network coverage areas.”

“All centres network must be powered by switches; no hubs allowed.

“Other CBT centres (CTC/CRC) are encouraged to open with any account with any of the partnership banks,” he said.
