According to a statement released by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Director of Public Affairs and Protocol of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), a total of N1,478,416,000.00 has been disbursed to the owners of Non-JAMB Computer-Based Test centers across the country.
This payment was made for the services provided during the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. The statement also mentioned that an amount of N59,585,000 was deducted from the approved sum, as it was allocated to JAMB-owned CBT centers.
Dr. Benjamin emphasized the importance of settling financial obligations promptly in order to maintain a positive and cooperative relationship with partners who carried out their responsibilities effectively. The statement was made available to the press in Abuja on Thursday.
”It is to be noted that most of the centres used for the examination are not JAMB-owned while some are ICT facilities of tertiary institutions.
”This symbiotic relationship between the Board and the privately-owned CBT centres and others is collaborative in nature and is designed to ensure better quality service delivery and inclusiveness.
”Hence, the Board is proud to announce that all centres owners who rendered quality service during the just-concluded examination had been appropriately commended for a job well done and paid accordingly,” he said.
Additionally, he emphasized that the board, being a responsive organization, will persist in its efforts to ensure equal opportunities for all candidates to access higher education. This will be achieved by maintaining a fair and equitable examination process. Furthermore, he restated the board’s dedication to utilizing advanced technology to not only deliver high-quality assessments but also safeguard the credibility of its examinations.
