JAMB to blacklist vendors, agents who violate 2022 UTME rules

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will blacklist any vendors or its agents who violate its rules for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) exercise.

The Registrar of the board, Prof Is’haq Oloyede, stated this in Ibadan on Saturday, while monitoring the registration exercise at some centres.

Oloyede, who said he was impressed and satisfied with the registration process at the centres visited, said the involvement of parents was part of the problem faced in the ongoing 2022 UTME registration.

“There are few places where it could be better but here at the University of Ibadan, it has been very excellent.

“Some CBT centres, vendors and agents will be blacklisted, the implication is that if you do not follow the rules, you do not have the right to our accreditation,” he said.

Oloyede stated that part of the quality assurance mechanism was to allow a candidate to see who is registering him/her.

“The purpose of that is that a candidate sits in front of the screen for about six to seven minutes and he or she will be seeing the large picture of the person registering.

“It is possible that if there are problems, the person will be able to recognise the person who registered him or her.

“But, If you minimise that picture and that candidate cannot identify you in case of a problem, that is a violation of one of our rules.

“Follow the rules you need not think for us because we have a purpose for what we are doing,” the registrar said.On those selling above the official price of N4700, Oloyede said:

“If someone who is vending the pin at the particular place is selling consistently more than N4,700, those registering here (at a particular centre) ought to know and if not, then we will hold them responsible for not being vigilant because it is within their premises.

“But we will not hold them responsible for the charges because every pin sold, we know the vendor, so we could trace the vendor, we call E-transact or System Spec Remita, but all of them at the face value they will sell at N4,700.
