JAMB: Enugu Candidates Stranded Over Sit-At-Home Order, Boar

2022 UTME which was to end on Monday, May 9 has been postponed to Tuesday, May 10, due to the sit-at-home order by the  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the South East every Monday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the exam was canceled in Enugu State and shifted to May 10, a development unknown to some candidates who went for their exam Monday morning.

Some candidates knew about the shift after they reprinted their examination slips. The exam has now been fixed for 7 am on Tuesday, May 10.

Ezekiel Okpara, one of the candidates said: "There was no vehicle to convey my friend and me to TETFUND Centre at the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus, (UNEC) where we are supposed to write the examination.

“My dad took us in his car to the centre and we were disappointed when other students standing at the entrance of the hall told us that it has been postponed to Tuesday.

“We went to a cyber cafe close to the centre to do a reprint of our slip where we saw that the date and time have been shifted.”

Another candidate, identified as Chigozie said: 

"It is risky to go out on Mondays in Enugu for fear of the unknown but here we are to write our CBT which did not hold. Personally, I feel disappointed and stranded because my house is far from the centre.

“What can we do, we are going back to come back tomorrow.”
