JAMB Introduces E-Naira As Mode Of UTME Registration Payment
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has announced its collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria to facilitate payment of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) fees using e-Naira.
JAMB’s Director of IT, Architecture and Strategy Division at the CBN, Rakiya Mohammed, revealed that this move to adopt e-Naira payment would assist in curbing extortion of candidates, blocking leakages in JAMB’s transactions, and reducing cost.
However, Mohammed clarified that cash payments would still be accepted alongside e-Naira.
Further, Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB Registrar ordered all Computer-Based Testing (CBT) centres to install CCTV cameras for surveillance during UTME exercises or risk delisting as a credible centre.
He added that any centre found tampering with the cameras will have their results cancelled under the “no CCTV, no result, no payment” policy.
“Any centre that tampers with its CCTV system or router will pay for its reconfiguration.
“The CCTV must cover all areas of the examination centre including the biometrics verification point, holding rooms, walkway (if there is any), examination halls, server room, entrance and exit doors, among others”, he said.
Additionally, any centre found culpable can also face prosecution and delisting from JAMB.
