The University of Benin [UNIBEN] management Board has pleaded with the joint Admission Matriculation Board [JAMB] to lift the ban placed on its ICT Computer Based Test [CBT] centre for the registration exercise.
The Board of the university has denied the allegation leveled against the centre over charged fees of above N700 as it cost.
The spokesman of the university, Mr. Micheal Osasuyi said in a statement signed by him that the suspension was done hastily and without proper investigation.
He further noted that suspension of UNIBEN CBT Centre would be denying the institution access code to clear the backlog of over 300 candidates.
He, therefore, appealed to JAMB to grant them access to the portal to enable candidates to carry on with the registration exercise.
Osasuyi said, “Since we are not vending pins, JAMB has the authority over pins vending and can track the source of each pin they have dispensed.
“It is not proper for JAMB to withdraw our access without proper investigation of the accusation. For clarification, University of Benin is not vending JAMB PINs. We only attend to candidate who have their pins and they pay only N700.
“We have partnered with JAMB over the years without blemish, this accusation is therefore a serious embarrassment to the University of Benin. We look forward to your prompt release of our access code to be able to clear the backlog of over 300 candidates as a result of the withdrawal of our access.” Osasuyi said.
