According to Mr. Nuhu during the 2016 UTME
exercise, about 1.6 million applicants registered
for the UTME and about one million passed. He
stated that the 2017 exercise might reach 2
million across the country given the growing
number of applicants.
He noted that some of the approved registration
centres are registering only 250 applicants at a
time; most of them do not have enough space
and adequate number of computers.
He urged JAMB to specify the requirements
including safety measures, that approved centres
need to have to participate in the conduct of
UTME Computer Based Test and ensure 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 had earlier stated that it has no plans
of extending the registration deadline but with
this development, let’s watch how it all plays
out.
