Arrest Parents Who Come Near CBT Centre During UTME – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed all Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners to arrest any parent, who is found near any of their facilities during the 2024 UTME exercise.

JAMB Spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in a statement issued on Thursday, April 18, 2024.

According to Benjamin, the directive was issued at the final briefing of the Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners, which was held virtually on Wednesday, 17th April, 2024.

He said the directive became necessary following the intrusive disposition of some parents during the Board’s previous exercises.

Speaking at the briefing, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said any parent who disobeys the order would not only be arrested but his ward would also be disqualified from sitting the examination.

This measure, he said was necessary as it had been discovered over time that many of these intruding parents were facilitators of examination infractions while others have, by their actions, disrupted the Board’s examinations in the past. Some miscreants also disguise as parents to infiltrate the centres to perpetrate all forms of infractions.

Consequently, the Registrar disclosed that the Board had directed security operatives to work with the centres to apprehend any meddlesome parent, who come near the centres.

The Board’s helmsman noted that going by the extant national policy on education, a candidate for the examination must have attained the age of 17 years. Therefore, it was evident that these parents had not allowed their wards to pass through the classes as defined in the document, hence, the determination to follow their wards to the examination venue with the aim of compromising examination officials.

The Board also availed itself of the opportunity provided by the meeting to advise candidates to jealously guard their personal details, e-mail address, as well as their registration and phone numbers. This advice is issued against the backdrop of some candidates, who might be enticed into patronising any of those fraudulent websites out there.

Consequently, the Board informed candidates that if their personal details are found with any of such sites, they would be treated as accomplices and prosecuted.

Furthermore, the Registrar said all arrangements had been concluded for the conduct of the 2024 UTME, which will be held in over 700 CBT centres across the nation.
