NIN failure: JAMB finally begins to register candidates for admissions in 2021



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board announced on Saturday the start of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation entrance examination and the registration of candidates for direct entry into higher education institutions in Nigeria.

The decision was made only 48 hours after stopping the exercise on the technical challenge of the “national ID number”.

However, a brief statement issued by JAMB spokesperson Dr. Fabian Benjamin stated that as all issues have been resolved, registration for the exam is now in full swing.

“It was shelved just to solve technical problems. Now, registration is in full swing.” He added that some candidates have successfully registered for the exam.

On Thursday, Benjamin apologized for the delay in starting the registration process. He said that it is speculated that the registration process will start on the same day.

According to him, the delay was due to some unforeseen circumstances caused by its firm efforts to integrate NIN.

“To be sure all processes are completed before the commencement, the board didn’t place its advertorial as it has yet to complete the process of a smooth PIN vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE.

“The advertisement is the surest indication of the beginning of the exercise as it has all the step-by-step process that candidates are required to follow.

“However, this delay is caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by our determined effort to have a NIN integration. This challenge is being resolved and once that is done, all processes shall commence.

“Candidates are, therefore, requested to exercise some patience. The process shall be up and running shortly for our advertisement to be rolled out so that candidates can begin the creation of profiles.”

There’s love in sharing.
