The information was contained in a Press statement which was made available by the Spokesperson of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board JAMB, Mr. Fabian Benjamin and was obtained by Nigeria News on Tuesday.
Benjamin noted that the decision was taken in a bid to accommodate more candidates who were willing to register. He, however, cautioned that sanctions will be imposed on late registration in the future.
“JAMB as a responsive organization has taken the decision albeit with great hesitation to accommodate candidates who failed to register between the two months window period that ended at midnight of Tuesday, 6th February 2018,” Mr. Benjamin said
“The failure of these candidates to register is unfortunate and the Board hastens to add that this culture of impunity will not be tolerated and indeed penalty may be imposed for late registration in future.
“Candidates are therefore strongly advised to take advantage of the extension to register as a request for a further extension would not be entertained,” the spokesperson said. For emphasis, 2018 UTME registration now closes at midnight of Sunday, 11th February 2018.”
