Candidates with biometric issues will write utme in Abuja

On a more serious note, this current Jamb registrar, Prof.Ishaq Oloyede is really trying .Apart from the fact that he remitted a lot of money to the federal government he has also shown disciplinary actions and he has tried to reduce examination malpractice.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has stated that 2019 UTME candidates with Biometric issues during the registration will have to write the examination only in the Federal capital territory, Abuja. The board also said it will be responsible for the cost of transportation of the candidates to and from Abuja. This was contained in the weekly bulletin of the Board.
According to Jamb, the issue of biometric error is just an excuse or opportunity to cheat.
Recall that the board had earlier stated that any candidate with biometric issues must report at its office in Abuja to resolve the issues and write the examination.

It was gathered that out of the 52 candidates that were refered to Abuja due to biometric issues from the various states, only 22 of them actually showed up in Abuja for registration despite the fact that the board would be responsible for transportation.
JAMB equally stated that it would not reschedule examination for any candidate on account of a biometric challenge.
The exam is expected to take off Marc 16th if the Gubernatorial elections do not drag beyond March 9th, 2019.
Like I've said , discard any news saying jamb exam has been postponed.
