The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says preparations are ongoing for commencement of sale of registration documents for its 2023/2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
The registrar of the board, Ishaq Oloyede, gave the assurance during a media chat on Sunday in Lagos.
He was reacting to a speculation that JAMB might not conduct UTME for 2023/2024 session due to the effects of the protracted strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on admissions into public universities.
I want to clearly state here that there is no truth in such a rumour. To start with, it is not all the universities that went on strike.
“To some others, academic sessions were uninterrupted but they have since concluded admission for the 2022/2023 session; so, there is no moral justification to stop the conduct of our examination for the 2023/2024 session.
“In fact, about one third of these universities were running a normal session while the strike lasted, and had concluded,” he said.
He described the strike as unfortunate, saying, however, that many of the affected universities were able to come up with innovative ways to tackle backlogs.
Right now, we are doing everything possible to ensure that we come up with a date.
“My appeal, therefore, is for the Federal Government and ASUU to seek a common ground to the issues raised, in a bid to forestall any further occurrence,” he said.
The JAMB boss said that, with effect from 2023, all new centres to be accredited for UTME must provide only laptops for conduct of the examination.
He said that the aim was to eradicate system collapse due to disruptions in power supply.
According to him, all existing centres using desktops must provide backups such as UPS to keep the systems going during the examination in the event of any disruption in power supply.
Mr Oloyede added that henceforth candidates would pay N1,000 at the point of registration for both the mock and the real UTME.
He said that the payment would help in cushioning the effect of the high cost of energy used in running the CBT centres throughout the entire period of the exercise.
“We have given approval to operators of the CBT centres to increase their service charge from N700 to N1,000.
Candidates are to pay the charge ahead, at the point of registration for both the mock and the main examinations.
“This will also eliminate waste of time and resources. We know of cases in which candidates will indicate interest for mock at the point of registration but, at the end, they don’t show up,” he said.
Mr Oloyede also said that arrangements had been concluded for upgrade of JAMB’s Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System to serve as a communication channel among it, regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions.
He said that the initiative, which would be rolled out on November 14 in Abuja, would serve as a communication platform along with JAMB’s Central Admission Processing System, CAPS.
The JAMB boss said that the development was to ensure full transition from a paper communication system to paperless system.
“This will reduce delay in the conduct of the board’s critical operations, increase efficiency, track communication and archive records of communications,” he said.
According to him, already, the CAPS communication platform is being used to transmit, track and record/archive communication on admission-related issues between institutions and JAMB.
“For a smooth transition to paperless regime, the board would be meeting with all tertiary institutions, virtually, on Monday, November 14.
“The meeting will be held in two batches on the same day – for the northern and southern tertiary institutions.
“Also in attendance would be the three regulatory bodies of institutions of higher learning in the country – National Universities Commission, National Commission for Colleges of Education and National Board for Technical Education,” he said.
The registrar also told journalists that the board was considering adopting e-wallet for payment for its services.

GAS EXPLOSION LEAVES SEVEN KWARAPOLY STUDENTS AND GAS ATTENDANT INJURED, IN ILORIN FIRE ACCIDENT
Seven students of the Kwara State Polytechnic (Kwarapoly), Ilorin, Kwara state reportedly sustained varying degrees of injury during a fire incident at a gas refilling shop near a student hostel.
The fire incident, which occurred at Destiny Villa, Dola Abinbola Street, Elekoyangan area in the Ilorin East local government area of the state late Saturday night, also involved a gas attendant.
The Head of Department media and publicity of the state Fire Service, Hakeem Adekunle, on behalf of the director of the service, Prince Falade John, said that the fire started when a gas attendant at a nearby gas shop was refilling a gas cylinder, positioned several meters above ground level.
“The cylinder fell and exploded, concurrently releasing gas from the charged hose used for refilling. This exacerbated the fire, resulting in injuries to seven Kwara State Polytechnic students and the gas attendant.
“The firemen promptly departed from the station and upon arrival at the scene, they encountered a building with about 17 self-contained rooms fully ablaze. Four rooms were affected, and eight individuals sustained injuries”.
The fireman said that a total estimated property lost was valued at N14.6 million, while a total estimated property saved was N72.2 million.
In response to the incident, Director of Kwara State Fire Service, Prince Falade John, dispatched his team to check on the affected students on Sunday, November 19, 2023.
The Director also urged the members of the public to prioritise safety measures to prevent fire disaster
VARSITY UNIONS,LAUDS PRESIDENT TINUBU,OVER CANCELLATION OF 40% IGR DEDUCTION POLICY
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA) have commended the Federal Government for cancelling the deduction of 40 per cent from the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of Federal universities.
Both unions applauded President Bola Tinubu for toeing the path of peace.
The ASUU Chairman, Nasarawa State University, Keffi chapter, Prof. Samuel Alu, described it as “one of the best decisions taken by this administration in recent times.”
Alu, therefore, asked the government to revisit the Nimi Briggs committee recommendations of the ASUU-FGN renegotiation.
“There shouldn’t be any shame in retraction if you have a superior argument over any matter. This is commendable and should be sustained,” he said.
On his part, CONUA National President, Dr Niyi Sunmonu, called on the Federal Government to pay the eight-month withheld salaries of members, even as he described the news as a ‘welcome development’.
Sunmonu said that the decision would have had adverse effect on the ivory tower had it been implemented.
The academic tasked the FG to explore ingenious ways of improving funding in the universities for the overall benefit of the nation rather than dipping its hands into the coffers of tertiary institutions.
He said: “It appeared the various negative reactions that greeted the announcement of the policy were not lost on the president. The FG should know that our universities are struggling to cope in the face of dwindling resources and will eventually have negative impact on the growth of the nation.
“So, CONUA is of the opinion that the government should not stop at this cancellation, but must effect ingenious ways of improving funding in the universities for the overall benefit of the nation.”
Tinubu, had through his Education Minister, Prof. Tahir Mamman, announced the cancellation of the planned 40 per cent deduction at the Founder’s Day ceremony of the University of Ibadan (UI)
