Jamb To Use NIN For 2020 UTME Registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it would use the National Identity Number issued by the National Identity Management Commission for the conduct of 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

Jamb registrar, Prof. Is-Haq Oloyede, stated this when the director of the bureau of public service reforms, Mr. Dasuki Arabi, visited him at the headquarters of the board in Abuja.

He said the introduction of the NIN to UTME was in line with the directive of the federal government that National Identification Management Commission should be the primary data collection centre.  

He noted that the NIN would guard against all forms of registration infractions.

The registrar, in a statement by the agency’s head of information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin today  in Abuja, said the board has concluded arrangements with the agency to use NIN number as a pilot for 2020 UTME.
