The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has

Examination in Maiduguri, Borno State. The
Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, disclosed this to
journalists on Saturday while monitoring the
Saturday’s examination.

He said, “JAMB candidates who are supposed to
go to Maiduguri to write their exams have
decided to stay at home. There are about 400 of
them. We have told them we will cater for them.

They are afraid of what will happen to them.”
Ojerinde said the affected candidates will sit for
Computer Based Test instead of the Paper Pencil
Test that they applied for which held on

Also responding to questions, the Permanent
Secretary Ministry of Education, John Nwaobiala,
debunked reports that candidates for JAMB exam
were among those attacked in Maiduguri. He
said, “There were some challenges that came up
and the feeling was that since there were
disturbances in that area, it might affect students’

“The CBT is coming up so they will have the
opportunity to write the exam. There will be no
disenfranchisement of candidates ” he said.
