The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Lagos Zonal office, said 95 per cent of candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) met the National Identification Number (NIN) compulsory requirement.

JAMB Acting Director, Mr Shittu Billiaminu, disclosed this in Lagos on Friday.

Billiaminu told NAN that the board had always worked with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to ensure all candidates who wished to write the examination this year got their NIN.

Recall that the 2021 UTME examination will start from Saturday, June 19, until July 3.

According to him, JAMB notified that candidates who failed to obtain NIN will not complete JAMB registration successfully and will not write the examination.

Billiaminu said, “However, a mop-up exam which the date is yet to be announced, will be conducted.’’

He further stated that JAMB and the Federal Government received NIN to carry out accurate data and do accurate planning.

Billiaminu advised parents to allow their children to handle JAMB registration themselves to ensure a proper registration process and better understanding between their children and the board.

He said, “One of the challenges we have is that parents don’t allow us to rest.

“They knock on the JAMB gate every time and when we grant them access, they cannot answer the questions we ask.

“When JAMB requires profile code of their wards, some of them don’t know it.

“In fact, we have made it a policy to deal with candidates directly.’’
