JAMB To Meet With ‘critical Stakeholders’ To Review UTME. by walex : November 13, 2017, 12:51:29 PM
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will meet with “critical stakeholders” in education on Wednesday to appraise the general conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos that the meeting, scheduled to hold in Abuja, would brainstorm on the conduct of the examination and identify possible areas for review.

Among those expected at the meeting are Foreign Affairs Ministry officials, university lecturers, vice chancellors and rectors of polytechnics, he said.

“We are also expecting top media executives, state commissioners of education and heads of colleges of education.

“Other stakeholders expected at the meeting are labour unions of Nigeria universities such as ASUU, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU), among others,’’ he said.

Mr. Benjamin said the board had held a similar meeting with owners of Computer Based Test (CBT) centres and administrators nationwide to appraise the registration and conduct of the 2017 UTME.

The JAMB Registrar, Is’haq Oloyede, during a meeting with administrators of the CBT centres announced new measures that would further strengthen the integrity and general conduct of the examination.

Mr. Oloyede also banned the use of pens, wrist watches and other devices as part of the newly introduced measures for the 2018 UTME.

According to him, experience has shown that some candidates were using the devices to perpetrate examination malpractices.

NAN reports no fewer than 617 centres had been accredited nationwide for the examination while 72 others waiting for approval.
