Management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has appealed to the
Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) to lift the suspension it
has placed on the use of UNIBEN ICT Computer Based Test (CBT)
centre for the unified tertiary matriculation examination registration.
The management denied the allegation that its CBT centre was
charging above N700 as cost of registration
According to a statement signed by the university’s spokesman, Mr.
Micheal Osasuyi, the suspension was done hastily and without proper
“It is not proper for JAMB to withdraw our access without proper
investigation of the accusation. For clarification, University of Benin is
not vending JAMB PINs. We only attend to candidate who have their
pins and they pay only N700.”Osasuyi said.
He noted that the suspension of UNIBEN CBT Centre would amount to
denying the institution access code to clear the backlog of over 300
He therefore appealed to JAMB to restore access to the University
Portal to enable candidates process their registration without delay
and commended JAMB for swiftly putting up measures to check
extortion of candidates in the registration exercise.
“We have partnered with JAMB over the years without blemish, this
accusation is therefore a serious embarrassment to the University of
Benin. We look forward to your prompt release of our access code to
be able to clear the backlog of over 300 candidates as a result of the
withdrawal of our access.” Osasuyi said.
