NIGERIANS REACT AS JAMB SUSPENDS NIN FOR UTME 2020 REGISTRATION.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended the use of the National Identification Number for registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME.
The registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, who stated this while briefing journalists in Abuja on Saturday, said the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers.
He said the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced at some centres while registering for Jamb CBT 2020.
He asked candidates to disregard the use of NIN for the 2020 registration and strictly comply with other procedures for the registration. He however said that JAMB will consider the use of NIMC for 2021 exams.
The board last year said from 2020, candidates will register for its examinations with their national ID numbera to solve the challenges of multiple registration.

Nigerians have Reacted to the recent development on Jamb’s Database regarding UTME 2020. Most of them who were already registered for their National Identification numbers (NIN) would have no other choice than to leave it and face their biometrics in preparation for their mock Examination commencing very soon.
What happens to those who have registered already and wasted time and money in the process???
Did you not think this through before subjecting these students to all this???
You guys should have a heart small…..😑😑😑😣

Identification hasn't been stopped only the use of identification for JAMB registration suspended for this year's examination cuz many students could be denied the right to having the exams cus of it. 2021 shall use the ID cus it would have given more time for all to register.

"There is no data that students need to register for NIN that’s not obtainable from their JAMB registration process.
Common sense is students registering from JAMB and the data being shared with NIN for automatic registration."
