NIN/profile code: NANS raises alarm over disenfranchisement of students by JAMB

The Kaduna State Chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Tuesday said thousands of candidates would not take part in this year’s Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination due to hitches in their NIN/Profile code.

The state NANS chairman, Axiz Huziafa Bello, in a statement issued yesterday in Kaduna, disagreed with the JAMB.

Bello called for an extension of the electronic registration instead of risking students’ lives to travel to JAMB headquarters in their respective states for manual registration.

He noted that the news bulletin released on Monday, May 31, 2021, titled ‘Issues surrounding the 2021 UTME registration: Option available for genuine candidates who made attempts but could not register’, showed that the management had failed to show empathy for the hardship and agony of the candidates.

He appealed to prominent Nigerians to prevail on the management of JAMB to desist from unleashing hardship on Nigerian students in their noble quest for higher education and self-development.

He urged the examination body to extend the registration period and postpone the exam in the interest of justice and fairness.
