2022 UTME: 1.5M candidates registered so far 2022 UTME/DE – JAMB

Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq
Oloyede, while monitoring the 2022
UTME/DE registration exercise in Kano,
on Friday, 18th March, 2022, disclosed
that over 1.5m candidates had so far
registered for the exercise.
The Registrar, who visited AUA
Technologies Ltd CBT Centre, Kano;
Emirate College of Health Sciences and
Technology & Enterprenuership CBT
Centre, Kabuga Satellite Town, Kano, and
the JAMB PTC, Zonal Office, however,
noted the low turnout of candidates in
the various centres and enjoined
prospective candidates to come out and
register saying the Board would not
extend the registration exercise.
The Registrar, who had witnessed the low
turnout of candidates at some of the
centres visited, decried the situation
whereby candidates who refused to
come out to register in the meantime,
would turn around to swamp the registration center at the
close of registration to demand extension of the exercise. He
had noted that there were
only one or two candidates waiting to be
registered at these centres, which are
equipped with over 20 registration points
and capacity to register more than 300
each day.
While addressing the press later at the
Board’s Zonal Office, Kano, the Registrar
explained that it was practically
impossible for the Board to contemplate
extending the registration period owing
to the intense negotiations involved in
arriving at the current arrangements.
He took advantage of the monitoring.
