Reps urge extension of UTME registration deadline – Punch Newspapers


The Home of Reps on Wednesday required the expansion of the timeline for that 2017 enrollment of Single Tertiary Matriculation Exam (UTME).

The home required its Panel on Tertiary Training and Providers to liaise using the Combined Matriculation and Entrance Panel (JAMB) to make sure that the expansion phone was honored.

This emanated in the ownership of the movement by Rep. Damburam Nuhu (Kano–APC).

Within the movement, Nuhu called about the workout for 30 days expansion, stating that it’d produce more hours for more potential candidates to join up for that evaluation.

He explained that some candidates discouraged from enrolling.

Based on him, 250 candidates are being registered by a few of the authorized centers at the same time & most of these aren’t roomy , nor have sufficient pcs.

“Some of these have bare cables uncovered and therefore are carelessly organized on panels that were regular, hence without security necessity in case there is an urgent situation Nuhu stated.

He explained that out-of around 1.5 thousand secondary-school pupils likely to register just 600, for the evaluation, 000 could register in to the 30 days period for the workout fourteen days.

He advised JAMB to designate needs, including safety precautions, which certified any center to take part in the computer’s conduct -based check.

The lawmaker mentioned the requirement for that home to ask Oloyede, the Registrar, to describe the computer’s effectiveness -centered procedure for enrollment in outlying locations for candidates.

Week the Panel is likely to execute the task within one. (NAN)
