A report from Benue state says activities at the Makurdi office of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB, were on Thursday grounded to a halt.
This follows a peaceful demonstration by prospective JAMB candidates
With the scrapping of scratch card method for registration, the new JAMB system has been designed to limit or totally prevent multiple requests from different JAMB registration numbers. Therefore registration has to be done with an accredited JAMB centre.
This method has left some prospective candidates aggrieved in Makurdi due to long queues and logistics on the part of the officials handling the registration process.
