Jamb Suspends Uniben Cbt center and 8 others

Jamb is very strict this year.  Jamb laid down some rules for cbt centres to follow,  but some cbt centers decided to ignore them.  An example of such cbt/ict centre is the one located in the great University of Benin
The  other affected  cbt  centres are
Mardakem Company Ltd., 
Methodist Boys High School, College Road, beside Maritime Academy,
Oron, Akwa-Ibom state; Bintels Global Services LTD. (Centre for Computer Education)
Fr. Joseph Memorial High Sch. Aguleri, Anambra State; Noble & Shuaib ICT Ltd
Girls Secondary School, Alor, Anambra State
Global ICT Connect Ltd, Km 5, Gboko Rd, Opp College of Health Sciences, Benue State University, Makurdi and  2 others. 
Making a total of 9 cbt centres 

JAMB disclosed this in Volume 1, Number 4 of its JAMBulletin – a weekly publication of the office of its Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede.
Meanwhile, the examination body said it suspended the nine CBT centres for engaging in unauthorised use of registration SIM in a manner it claimed is inimical to candidates’ interest; as well as charging candidates higher than the authorised fee and for engaging in mobile registration.

JAMB said; during a meeting with CBT operators in Lagos, the board spelt out the cost for each service for the UTME, from the cost of obtaining the e-pins as reduced by the Federal Government to the cost of the reading texts and charges for registering candidates.
Remember  before the registration  started Jamb already  organised  a meeting  with the CBT operators in Lagos, where the guidelines on the exercise was deliberated and laid out for all to adhere to strictly. Earlier, the Board reiterated the directive of the Federal Government for the 2019 e-pins to be sold at N3,500, excluding the cost of the reading text, to ensure absolute compliance. The meeting had also resolved that the cost of registration should not exceed N700. Candidates were also to be guided properly on the assistance is required, without collecting any dime from them.
But the information the board got  was so appealing which  led to their suspension. 
"We are still monitoring  10 centers  in Lagos State " Ishaq Oleyede added
