JAMB, NUC threaten to sanction Universities selling application forms

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has taken action against three Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) pin vendors in Lagos state after they reportedly extorted candidates during registration for the 2023 UTME exam.

Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, witnessed the extortion when inspecting some of the registration centres.

He said that rather than the normal N5,700, these purported agents were charging as much as N8,700 for the pins.

The fraud was further highlighted by how one bank in connivance with a remitta charge gave a receipt for only N5,700 for an actual fee of N8,500.

Oloyede warned that those caught engaging in such criminal activities would be given a chance to explain their actions and then banned from any further transactions with JAMB.

This decision follows shortly after JAMB suspended eTransact from selling UTME e-pins over similar accusations of extortion.
