We would blacklist vendors, agents who violate 2022 UTME rules: JAMB
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday said it would blacklist vendors and agents that violate its rules for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The registrar, Is’haq Oloyede, said this while monitoring the registration exercise at some centres.
“Some CBT centres, vendors and agents will be blacklisted, the implication is that if you do not follow the rules, you do not have the right to our accreditation,” he said.
Mr Oloyede noted that part of the quality assurance mechanism was to allow a candidate to see who is registering him/her.
“It is possible that if there are problems, the person will be able to recognise the person who registered him or her,” the registrar said.
On those selling above the official price of N4700, Mr Oloyede said, “If someone who is vending the pin at the particular place is selling consistently more than N4,700, those registering here (at a particular centre) ought to know and if not, then we will hold them responsible for not being vigilant because it is within their premises.
“But we will not hold them responsible for the charges because every pin sold, we know the vendor, so we could trace the vendor, we call E-transact or System Spec Remita, but all of them at face value they will sell at N4,700.”
Mr Oloyede further said the implication of the blacklist is that “when the person is blacklisted our server will not allow him or her work anywhere related to JAMB.”
