The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday, warned the public not to fall prey to fraudsters and rumor mongers
JAMB, in its weekly bulletin of the office of the Registrar, gave the advice, while also clarifying that it is yet to begin the sale of the 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examinations (UTME) forms.
The statement reads ”JAMB reiterates that it has not begun the sale of its 2021 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) application forms, neither have it announced a date for the exercise.
”The clarification became necessary following fake news that the board has begun the sale and was urging prospective applicants to procure same from some nebulous selling outlets.
”The public is to note that the news of the purported sale of the registration forms is false and an attempt to mislead the public.”
The board stated that it has defined channels of communicating to the public and has not delegated any persons or group of persons to handle the sale on its behalf.
It also added that the public would be duly informed on the commencement of the exercise via appropriate media platforms once it was done planning the process.
It added that the sale of the application forms was delayed due to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Recall that over a 2.1million registered for the 2020 post UTME and Direct Entry.
