JAMB Blames NIN Requirement As Revenue Drops to N5.8bn

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has attributed the drop in the revenue it generated from sales of forms for the 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examinations and the Direct Entry Examinations to the introduction of the National Identification Number requirement into the registration process.

According to JAMB, the NIN requirement made it impossible for some prospective candidates to register, leading to the reduction in number of registered candidates and the proceeds generated from sales of forms.

The board’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this.
