House Of Reps Orders Jamb Registrar To Extend 2017 UTME Registration Deadline,The House Of Representatives on Tuesday raised a call in motion led by Danburan Nuhu (Kano-APC) on the extension of the 2017 UTME Registration Deadline.
The Nigerian Law makers who supported
the motion has urged the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to extend the one month deadline given to applicants. for the 2017 UTME exercise by at least another month [May] to create more space for prospective applicants.
Mr Nuhu while emphasizing on the
registration process said that during the
2016 UTME registration exercise about 1.6 million applicants registered out of which about one million passed while the 2017 exercise might reach 2million across the country given the growing number of applicants.
“Some of the approved centres are
registering 250 applicants at a time and
most of them are not spacious, do not have adequate number of computers,” he said.
He urged the examination body to specify the requirements including safety measures,which qualify any centre to participate in the conduct of UTME Computer Based Test.
He also urged JAMB to deploy safety
equipment to each centre to forestall any
incidence of stampede due to overcrowding.
The motion was unanimously adopted by the House and the committee on basic education was mandated to direct JAMB to comply with the resolutions.
The JAMB has repeatedly said it has no
plans of extending the April 19 registration deadline for the UTME.
