Is NIN Compulsory For JAMB 2020 Registration
Simple answer: Not any more, continue reading for more details.
The latest development on JAMB registration was that all candidates must now obtain their National Identification Number (NIN) before they are allowed to register for JAMB.
The Registrar of JAMB Professor Ishaq Oloyede who stated this while briefing newsmen in Abuja said the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification number.
Prof. Oloyede said the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced in some centres.
According to the JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, the board was bringing in the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), as directed by the National Assembly and Federal Executive Council, to conduct the 2020 UTME.
However, JAMB has not suspended this new development until 2021. This is to ensure that candidates have enough time to get their NIN before JAMB registration.
He said that the decision to suspend the use of the number as a periquisite for the 2020 UTME and Direct Entry registration came after several calls from stakeholders to do so.
“We also decided to suspend that prerequisite based on some technical issues on ground,” he said.
Oloyede spoke further: “We came to a decision yesterday and decided that we will suspend the use of NIN as a prerequisite for the 2020 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) registration until 2021.
“By then, all candidates would have been given one year notice to register.
“This does not affect our permanent and adhoc staff who will participate in the exercise as they will require the NIN for verification.
“We have gone round and seen the passion and commitment of the candidates; the reality on ground is that what we expect is not attainable at the moment, so we shall not inflict more pain on candidates.” Oloyede also noted that technical issues on ground with regards to the system of registration at the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC), was one of the major reasons for the suspension. According to him, plans are underway for the provision of a more advanced system that will be more efficient for the exercise.
