UTME: Arrest Any Parent Loitering At Exam Centres, JAMB Urges CBT Operators

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has ordered all Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners to arrest any parent, who is found near any of their facilities during the 2024 UTME exercise.


JAMB in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin stated that the directive was issued by the Board’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede at the final briefing of the Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners, which was held virtually on Wednesday, April 17, 2024.


He added that the directive became necessary following the intrusive disposition of some parents during the Board’s previous exercises.


Oloyede stated that any parent, who disobeys this order, would not only be arrested but his ward would also be disqualified from sitting the examination.
