Written by MJ

Prospective candidates of the 2021 UTME will have to link their applications to their National Identification Number (NIN).

This is coming after the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Identification and Management Commission (NIMC) entered into a partnership to have the NIN as part of JAMB’s registration criteria.

NIMC’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kayode Adegoke who revealed that the agreement was made earlier this year, explained that the NIN was not used in the 2020 examinations due to technical hitches.

He however maintained that the technical issues have been resolved and assured that the Commission was ready to capture all the candidates because all necessary steps has been taken.

According to him, his conviction stems from the recent licensing of 203 agents by the Federal Government who are due to commence work immediately after Christmas celebrations. He stressed that with this, the NIMC can capture the over two million UTME candidates.

He further advised prospective UTME candidates to take advantage of the ample time to get their NIN so as to avoid rush and failure to register.

Meanwhile, JAMB has explained that it did not sign any contract with the NIMC on the compulsory use of NIN as a requirement for its UTME registration.

JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin clarified that what JAMB signed with the agency was a partnership and not a contract.

The Board insisted that it merely agreed to forge a partnership with the NIMC on the compulsory registration of its UTME candidates.
