JAMB Records 40 Malpractice Cases, Nabs Security Agents

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it recorded 40 cases of malpractices in the 2021 Unified Tertiary  Matriculation Examination (UTME) as against the over 4,000 recorded in the previous year.
JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, who made this known during an oversight visit to the board by the Senate Committee on basic and secondary in Abuja, said some security personnel have been nabbed for aiding malpractices in the examination.

Oloyede, who presented the 2020 budget performance of the board to the committee, said the introduction of the National Identification Number  (NIN) in UTME registration successfully flushed out ‘fake people ‘  from the exam process as well curtailed malpractices.
