The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended the use of the National Identification Number for registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME.
This was disclosed by the registrar of JAMB, Prof.Ishaq Oloyede while briefing journalists in Abuja on Saturday.
He said the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers.
He added that the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced at some centres.
While urging potential candidates to strictly comply with other procedures for the registration, he said JAMB will consider the use of NIMC for 2021.
