The Joint Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded all arrangements to roll out the sale of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and
Direct Entry application documents. The dates for the sale of the documents, the conduct of mock examination and the UTME will be announced latest on Wednesday, 24th March 2021. Unlike what was obtainable in previous years, this year’s exercise is peculiar.
According to JAMB , the 2021 exercise was delayed due to the COVID -19 pandemic.
The public is to note that the 2021 UTME and the Direct Entry (DE) application documents are not yet on sale. Anybody advertising
anything to the contrary is a fraudster.
The board, while reiterating its commitment to ensuring sanity in the entire process , also disclosed that it had apprehended one Mr Okogu Ambrose for illegally registering candidates.
Mr Okogu Ambrose, the board further explained , was caught after collecting monies from innocent candidates in the name of registering them for the yet to commence 2021/2022 UTME exercise.
Ambrose is a serial offender, who was arrested in 2020 for extorting money for which he had no authority to execute.
The board would, however, ensure that relevant security agencies prosecute Ambrose with the hope that he does not escape the long arm of the law this time , ” it stated.
JAMB also appealed to all and sundry to support its drive towards ensuring that bad eggs in the society , who were bent on destroying education developmental aspirations , were made to face the full wrath of the law.
