JAMB Orders Arrest Of Parents Found Near CBT Centres During UTME

JAMB has instructed all owners of Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres to detain any parent discovered near their facilities during the 2024 UTME session. This directive, issued by JAMB Registrar Prof. Isaq Oloyede during a virtual meeting with CBT center operators, aims to deter parental interference in the examination process.

Any candidates associated with parents who violate this directive will face disqualification from the exam, as stated by JAMB spokesperson Dr. Fabian Benjamin.

“This measure is necessary as it has been discovered over time that many of these intruding parents are facilitators of examination infractions while others have, by their actions, disrupted the Board’s examinations in the past. Some miscreants also disguise themselves as parents to infiltrate the centres to perpetrate all forms of infractions,” the statement read in part.

Also, security agents are to work with CBT owners to ensure the smooth running of the exercise. 

“Going by the extant national policy on education, a candidate for the examination must have attained the age of 17 years. Therefore, it is evident that these parents have not allowed their wards to pass through the classes as defined in the document; hence, the determination to follow their wards to the examination venue with the aim of compromising examination officials. 

“At any rate, it is clear to any discerning observer that these parents deserve to be sanctioned, as they have obviously ‘smuggled’ underage children into the ranks of those scheduled to sit for the examination.”

The examination is taking place in 700 CBT centres across the country.
