The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has advised prospective candidates who wish to write the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to ensure they have the National Identification Number (NIN).
JAMB revealed this in a post via its Twitter handle and said this is important because it would only register candidates with NIN for 2020 UTME.
It urged prospective candidates to visit the nearest National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) office for their capturing.
The Board also warned against unauthorised financial transactions with its staff.
It tweeted via @JAMBHQ:
“All Candidates wishing to take the 2020 UTME must have the National Identification Number (NIN). Prospective candidates are urged to visit the nearest @nimc_ng office for their capturing. The Board would ONLY register candidates with NIN.
“Please be informed that the Board frowns on any form of financial dealings between candidates and staff.
“All payments on JAMB Services are made directly to the Board’s TSA.
“Therefore, candidates involved in any financial transaction with a staff of the Board should notify the Board immediately and also provide any useful information about such staff for necessary action.”
