JAMB To Deploy Soldiers For The Conduct Of 2017 UTME

A statement issued by head, information, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Dr Fabian Benjamin has revealed that Soldiers would be drafted to the computer based Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) centres in some parts of the country to beef up security.

According to the statement, this decision was reached after a meting between JAMB Registrar, Professor Is-haq O. Oloyede and Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai in Abuja.

It said the board had formed a common synergy with the army to secure the Computer Based Test (CBT) centres with a view to having a hitch free examination for the 2017 UTME.

“This need became imperative to seek for security intervention from the army, particularly in turbulent areas,” he said.

Commenting on this, General Buratai stated that some of the flash points pointed by the registrar were not only safe but habitable adding that normalcy, particularly in the Northeast had returned even as he promised to deploy troop for more surveillance and protection during the examination.

Did they thoroughly assess the psychological effects this will have on candidates? how can a student sit and answer questions confidently with soldiers( probably armed) loitering the premises. They should have employed Interpol, SEAL and international security forces as well. Oloyede Olodo.

I don't think that the soldiers will be against us, it is for our safety.
  • thelme: seriously??! ow can u tlk like dis naw, safety against wat?!dis tin iz jux common sense here! over d years,last year we've bin writing jamb without soldiers!n m 100% dey hasn't bin anyform of violence or watsoeva,so y now?! y d use of it?!bcus of oloyede stupid methods without thinking!dats y dey was voilence during registration dis year in d north!if it was d regular registration process(at cafes or anywer)do u think dat wud av happened?!no it wudnt av! so dis is just misplaced priorities,waste of money(cus d soldiers cant jux kom n "protect" as dey say for free,n waste a whole day say for "jambites",no how dey wud pay deir heads(Oga) for it) cus am not ceein d benefit or use of it! wen e shud b thinking n working towards d effectiveness of every center! no laspses in terms of electricity,computer failure,network issues,n so on...somhw sha Nigeria will continue to be lyk dis,lost!

  • Nikki law: @ apart frm dat set those fat asses soldiers they re always looking for d slightest opportunities to showcase their authorities nd brutalise civilians rather than protecting our right which is their job. God forbid on d exam day a candidate shld mistakenly step on a soldier's foot probably unknowingly dat day he would get d beating of is life

  • Smold: Another bomb blast at unimaid, date:13th may, target:jamb candidates.... But was unsuccessful for the jambites but was successful to the security personels who lost there lives... I think the soilders are too small... They should come with airforce, navy, mopol and SSS, even with helicopters, war jets and armoured trucks... Thats my suggestions dou, meant no harm for boko haram, thats just peace talk
