JAMB addresses candidates with incomplete registration

THE Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) on Monday, advised candidates whose registration process is incomplete to visit special centres to finish the process.

The examination body said that the candidates with legitimate reasons for incomplete registration have been contacted and are expected to visit the centres.

In a statement, JAMB’s Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin, said, “At the end of the period originally scheduled for the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registration on May 15, the registration period was extended.

“Another two weeks that elapsed on May 29 was to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related with newly introduced pre-requisite of National Identification Number (NIN), could not register.

“Additional extension of two weeks was made to compile the list of all prospective candidates who for any reason were unable to register.

“The candidates who have not registered but have secured the profile codes and initiated the registration process are expected to visit the specially designated registration centres to complete the registration on Tuesday, June 15.

“Designated registration centre for each candidate is being forwarded to them through the GSM text (SMS) messages and also available on the website of the Board (www.jamb.gov.ng) from 12 noon on Monday, June 14.

“The identification number on each form given to the candidates has been used to assign the candidates to their registration centres.

“Only candidates who have secured their profile codes are expected to visit the centres.

“Also, the names of the few who have not yet obtained their NIN or profile codes have been forwarded to NIMC and would be contacted as soon as they are cleared by NIMC.

“Each candidate posted to any non-JAMB owned CBT centre is expected to pay the registration fee of N1,000 to such CBT centre.”

The 2021 UTME is scheduled to commence from June 19 to July 3.

Earlier, the Registrar of the Board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, said that the examination’s body could conduct a second UTME for candidates with genuine registration challenges.

TB Joshua to be buried in Lagos

Contrary to the anticipation that the General overseer, the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor TB Joshua may be buried in his home town, Arigidi-Akoko in Ogun State, a family source on Monday, said he will be buried in Lagos.

The source which pleaded anonymity also said that the burial rights for the cleric will take place between July 5 and July 9, 2021.

The source said the date was fixed after the immediate and extended members of the family of TB Joshua met at the residence of the deceased in Lagos State on Friday.

The family decision is contrary to the expectation of the monarch of Arigidi Akoko, Oba Yisa Olanipekun, and some other traditional rulers who wanted the late pastor buried in his hometown.

But the family member said the wife, Evelyn, and the children of the late cleric prevailed on the extended family over the burial place and date at the meeting.

“It was on the insistence of the wife and the children that the other family members agree on the place of burial because they said they saw revelations that he should be buried in Lagos. Since they said it was spiritual, the family agreed with them.
