The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the suspension of the ongoing registration exercise for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in 243 centres across the country.

The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, in Lagos, said the suspension of the exercise in the affected centres is to allow the board conduct a third party recruitment examination, scheduled for Jan. 16

He said, “The reason for the suspension of the exercise in the 243 centres nationwide by the board is that the centres are likely going to be used for third-party recruitment examination and we do not want to create any overcrowding.

“in spite of that, the registration exercise will resume again in those centres nationwide, on Jan. 17.
