Waffi Tv: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has enlisted more than 300,000 candidates for its 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in one week.

The Board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on 18th Of January in Lagos.

Benjamin said this was coming seven days after the initiation of the enrollment exercise.

As indicated by him, the enrollment so far has been consistent, and the board is content with the improvement.
“We are happy with the way the process is going; we hope it will continue this way.

“So far, we have registered over 300,000 candidates as at Thursday.

“We are happy there have not been issues because so far, there is just a tiny gap between the number of candidates that have acquired the e-pin and that of those that have registered,” he said.
Meanwhile JAMB had demanded that all candidates with issues of biometrics must head toward Abuja for it to be rectified.
“I want to reiterate the fact that only the Registrar of the board has the sole right to attend to such issues.

“Any candidate who may have issues with the capturing of his or her finger prints at their respective points of registration will need to come down to our office in Abuja.

“This will require the Chief Executive to do it himself for the purpose of security,” Benjamin said.
This, notwithstanding, was in opposition to calls by a few stakeholders asking the board to set up special centers in different states to handle issues.
