The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that JAMB’s portal would be integrated into that of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission




The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that JAMB’s portal would be integrated into that of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) in 2021.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head, Media and Information of the board said this while speaking with news men on Saturday.

“This integration will be done in such a way that anyone, be it from JAMB itself, institutions, the candidates or the general public, causing infractions of whatever type to our examination and its processes will be decisively dealt with immediately” he said.

Benjamin also directed candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to start printing their slips for the Computer Based Test (CBT).

Candidates were further instructed to look out for the location of their centres before their examination dates.

“This is in order to avoid running around on the examination day trying to locate the centres, and as a result, getting to the centre late.

“It should be stated clearly now that lateness to the examination will not be tolerated, no matter the excuse,”

“Admission into our tertiary institutions are at the centre of national development, and therefore, any person or group of persons found to be truncating the national development process will not be assured.”

“The board will not relent in its effort, in ensuring that its processes are devoid of corrupt practices,” he assured.
