JAMB delist 116 centres over registration-related misconduct


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has delisted 116 centres over “registration-related misconduct”.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said the blacklisted 116 exam centres include a Computer-based Test centre in Akokwe, Delta State, alleging that the operators bribed exam officers with N1.7m.

Oloyede said while not being aware that JAMB officials were monitoring, two centres in Akokwe in Ideato examination town paid N1,760,000 to compromise the workers on duty.

He said the workers concerned are being investigated to determine their culpability.

Announcing this in Abuja over the weekend,  the JAMB registrar said  Franklin Ekele, 15, from Imo State, emerged  as the highest performer with 347 marks, followed by Abia State’s  Emmanuel Chidiebube, 16,   who scored 346,  and Osun State’s  Isaac Olamilekan, with 345 score.

However, Oloyede said Ekele and Chidiebube may not gain admission to their school of choice, University of Lagos, because they were underage.
