Nigeria: overcrowding forces University exam body cancels registration

IT News Nigeria:

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced that is has cancelled registration exercise for today in the 243 CBT centres due over crowing and lack of sustainable  capacity to accommodate huge number of student registrants.

Head, Media and Publicity, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin revealed this in a statement to the media in Abuja on Wednesday.

He added that it will occur in places where a third-party recruitment examination would take place across the nation on Thursday, January 16,

According to him, the decision to cancel Thursday’s registration exercise was taken to avoid overcrowding of the centres.

He said registration, would however, resume on Friday, January 17, 2020.

“The Board regrets all inconveniences this decision must have caused the candidates,” he said.
