The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, told candidates not to pay money to any of its employees for any services. Rather, JAMB asked the candidates to channel all payments for its services to the Treasury Single Account, TSA.
It comes at the heels of the claim that some JAMB staff in their Lagos office extorted N2000 from students who wanted to do any paperwork with them.
Reacting, JAMB said it frowns at any form of financial dealings between candidates and its workers.
In a terse statement on its Twitter handle on Thursday, the Board said: “All payments on JAMB services are made directly to the board’s TSA. Please be informed that the board frowns on any form of financial dealings between candidates and workers.
“Candidates involved in any financial transaction with a staff of the board should notify the board immediately and also provide any useful information about such staff for necessary action.”
Recall that the Board had previously instructed candidates wishing to write the 2020 UTME to visit the nearest National Identity Management Commission office to have their data collected. This mentioned that candidates should register for the National Identification Number as a prerequisite for the 2020 test.
