JAMB says 2019 election will not affect 2019-2020 UTME examination

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede says the 2019 general elections would not affect the board’s 2019-2020 examination.

He made this remark while fielding questions from journalists shortly after delivering the 2018 Annual Sobo Sowemimo Lecture of the Abeokuta Club in Abeokuta.

Professor Oloyede said since the Independent National Electoral Commission has given the dates of the elections, the board would need to adjust accordingly.

The JAMB Registrar decried the rate at which candidates, who were not qualified to write the examination applied for it, thereby, causing what he described as unnecessary luggage on the board.

According to him, the examination body would adopt stiffer measures to check incidences of unqualified candidates from applying and writing the examination for the 2019-2020 admission exercise.
