Ahead of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination where the National Identity Number would be a requirement, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said it has partnered the National Identity Management Commission to register 67 secondary schools in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The board noted that the pupils of the 67 schools would be conveyed to NIMC registration centres by buses provided by the Federal Capital Territory Administration to obtain their National Identification Number.
JAMB revealed this in its weekly bulletin on Sunday.
The board said, “One of the key components in the preparations for the forthcoming registration and examination is an aggressive enlightenment campaign, adding that the JAMB is partnering the FCTA and the NIMC to attain speedy registration of candidates for the 2020 UTME.
Meanwhile, the leader of the NIMC at the meeting, Mr Anna Pai, said the commission had put in place adequate logistics to ensure that students obtained their Identification Numbers without stress.
