The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has suspended the use of NIN in the 2020 UTME sighting limited time for candidates yet to obtain a National Identity Card.
This was made known by the JAMB registrar Ishaq Oloyede in Abuja while briefing newsmen on Saturday. He said the move was to provide more time for candidates to obtain the NIN number.
He urged candidates to disregard the use of NIN for this year’s UTME and comply with other means of registration. He said JAMB will start using the National Identification Number in 2021.
The use of NIN is aimed at curbing the challenge of multiple registration by candidates.
