JAMB registers over 500,000 candidates for the UTME/DE

Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has revealed that the board has so far registered over 500,000 applicants for the 2022 UTME, with plans to register at least 1.5 million students by March 26, the deadline for candidate registration.

To achieve this, Oloyede stated that the board intends to register at least 50,000 candidates per day, noting that JAMB had already registered about 70,000 candidates two days ago.

After supervising the drill in Bwari and Dutse on the outskirts of Abuja on Thursday, he announced it in Abuja.

The Registrar also cautioned candidates against disclosing their codes to third parties, warning that fraudsters could use them to modify their accounts to their own benefit. He also asked non-candidates to stay away from registration centers during the exercise, and parents to let their children read and follow the registration instructions.

He went on to say that the registration process had been mainly successful, and that 99 percent of the problems applicants had were self-inflicted as a result of playing into the hands of scammers.
