The decision to postpone the registration exercise, was taken on Thursday, April 8,in Abuja.
Fabian Benjamin,the JAMB’s head of media and protocol, said the registration exercise was cancelled due to some hitches.
The joint admission and matriculation board(JAMB) has postponed the commencement of registration for the 2021 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) and Direct entry (DE).
Fabian Benjamin,the JAMB’s head of media and protocol, said in Abuja that the board confirmed the challenges surrounding the registration exercise.
He said the delay followed the examination body’s effort to ensure candidates have access to it’s Registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE and also finalise work on it’s pin vending process before the take-off of the process.
The examination board said:
“To be sure all processes are completed before the commencement,the board didn’t place it’s advertorial as it was yet to complete the process of a smooth pin vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE.
"This delay is caused by some of unforseen circumstances occasionally by our determined effort to have a national identity number (NIN) integration.this challenge is being resolved and once that is done,all processes shall commence"
