The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed candidates scheduled to take examinations in the 24 delisted centres to print their notification slips for new dates and time of examinations.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, the Head, Protocol and Public Affairs of the board, gave the directive in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
The board delisted 24 Computer Based Centres (CBT) across the country over their poor performance at the commencement of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
“Candidates scheduled to take the examination in delisted centres can proceed to print their examination notification slips from June 2020 for their new schedule dates and time.
“This applies only to centres delisted.
“You will recall that 24 centres were delisted for performing below the tolerable limit of the board, while over 40 others were put on the watch list,” the statement quoted Benjamin as saying.
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
