2022 UTME: JAMB Stance On NIN Registration

Giving stock of its activities in 2021, JAMB said the introduction of the National Identification Number (NIN) as a key requirement for UTME registration through its partnership with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) was a game-changer in the fight against impersonation and other examination infractions.

“It is to be noted that the decision to adopt NIN was a very difficult one given the various challenges and opposition from many quarters to the policy.

“However, the Board, seeing the many benefits associated with the deployment of NIN, took the unpopular but beneficial decision knowing that any departure from the norm would, more often than not, be met with initial opposition and rejection and was, therefore, understandably undeterred in its chosen course of action.

“Consequently, the Board gave its all to ensure that it secured the support of stakeholders and the result was the tremendous success it recorded in the 2021 UTME.”
