The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) in Nasarawa State says it has placed security agencies on alert to arrest and prosecute  individuals and CBT centres charging above stipulated amount for registration of prospective candidates.

Mr Sunday Aladegbaye, the board’s zonal Coordinator in the state, said this on Friday in Lafia during a coutesy visit to the General Manager of the State Broadcasting Service (NBS), Alhaji Yusuf Musa.

According to Aladegbaye, any individual or Computer Based Test (CBT) centre found charging above N4,000 from prospective candidates at the ongoing registration for the board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation (UTME) will be made to face the law.

Aladegbaye added that the board would continue to educate the people, especially the prospective UTME candidates on its examination guidelines in the interest of peace and development.

“We are here to see how we can synergise and collaborate with you on how to educate our prospective UTME candidates on the board’s ongoing 2020 registration.

“There are reports that some individuals and CBT centres are sabotaging the efforts of the board, especially by charging above approved fees, include the literature text.

“We have placed the security agencies on alert to arrest and prosecute any individual or CBT centres that goes against the law.

“This is to serve as deterrent to others with intention to do same and in the interest of the candidates and the overall development of the education sector, ” he said.

He lauded the management of the NBS for giving the board the much needed cooperation and called for sustenance.

Responding, Musa, who is also a Board member of Nigeria News Agency , expressed his delight at the visit, while assuring of the station’s maximum corporation.
