The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), has called on candidates to disregard advertisements on social media, announcing sales of registration documents with some illegal centers and subject combinations.
JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin made the warning on Tuesday in Lagos.
“It has come to the notice of the board that some fraudsters have listed out centers for the examination and in the process, inserted some illegal ones.
“Let me state here that all the processes concerning the board can only be done by approved Computer Based Centers (CBT),” he stated.
Benjamin noted that JAMB would soon publish the list of all approved centers in all its state offices nationwide to guide prospective candidates in choosing centers nearest to them. He also said that the sales of the registration forms for the exam would commence on the 10th of January, 2019.
“Already the list of over 700 accredited centers for this examination has been uploaded on our website.
“But we have not published any advert concerning all the processes, we are hoping to do so soon,” he added.
