The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board [JAMB] has registered over 300,000 candidates in one week.
The Board’s Head, Media and information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said this in a statement on Friday in Lagos.
He said that after a week of commencement of registration exercise which kicked off on the 10th of January 2019, the registration so far has been in progress and the board is happy with the development.
“We are happy with the way the process is going; we hope it will continue this way.
“So far, we have registered over 300,000 candidates as at Thursday.
“We are happy there have not been issues because so far, there is just a tiny gap between the number of candidates that have acquired the e-pin and that of those that have registered,” he said.
“I want to reiterate the fact that only the Registrar of the board has the sole right to attend to such issues.
“Any candidate who may have issues with the capturing of his or her fingerprints at their respective points of registration will need to come down to our office in Abuja.
“This will require the Chief Executive to do it himself for the purpose of security,” Benjamin said.
