JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has disclosed that the board has so far, registered over 500,000 candidates for the 2022 UTME and added that the board has plans to register at least 1.5 million candidates by March 26, the deadline set for the registration of candidates.
To achieve this, Oloyede said the board plans to register at least 50,000 candidates per day, saying JAMB has succeeded in registering about 70,000 two days ago.
He made this known in Abuja on Thursday after monitoring the exercise in Bwari and Dutse on the outskirts of the nation’s capital.
The Registrar also warned candidates not to divulge their codes to third parties as fraudsters could use them to manipulate their profiles to their own detriment. He also appealed to non-candidates to stay off registration centres during the exercise and urged parents to allow their children to read the registration instructions and follow them appropriately.
He added that the registration exercise has been mostly successful, adding that 99 per cent of problems encountered by candidates were self-inflicted because they played into the hands of fraudsters.
