The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB have suspended one of its accredited Computer Based Test CBT registration centres in Ilorin, Kwara State, for failure to adhere to registration procedures laid down by the board.

The CBT centre located at the Olorunsogo area of Ilorin was suspended for not providing appropriate and sufficient cameras for capturing candidates who were registering for the ongoing 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UMTE at the centre.

The JAMB registrar, Professor Is’haq Oloyede who personally discovered the shortcoming in the registration centre, said such a practice where only one camera is used to capture passport photographs of all candidates could lead to a mismatch of information and passport photograph of candidates.

He, therefore, ordered that the registration centre be suspended from further registering candidates for the examination, until, all necessary facilities needed for proper capturing of candidates’ passport photographs were put in place at the centre.

While addressing pressmen shortly after paying an unscheduled inspection visit to some of the registration centres, Professor Oloyede said the inspection tour of CBT registration centres was to ensure that everything was for the examination and to safeguard innocent candidates from being exploited by registration centres.

Professor Oloyede who was accompanied on the inspection tour by officials of the Board also warned that any registration centre caught or reported to be exploiting innocent candidates would be seriously dealt with, by the law.

Correspondent reports that the inspection tour which took off at the University of Ilorin Mini Campus CBT centre, Adewole area of Ilorin also inspected the CBT registration centre at the Kwara State College of Education, Ilorin, Alhikma University, Ilorin, Socrates College, Ilorin and some other privately owned registration centres, among which one was suspended from the exercise.
