UTME: Candidates complain over computer verification

Candidates sitting for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations in Nasarawa State have complained of lateness in the commencement of the examination and inadequate computers to verify candidates.

Some of the candidates, Sunusi Hussaini and Aklo Joseph who are sitting for the examination at the Lafia Knowledge JAMB Computer Based Centre, along Jos road in Lafia told Radio Nigeria that the verification process was too slow as only one computer was used for the exercise.

According to them, they were kept waiting for long hours in queues under the scourging sun before JAMB could arrive at their centre to commence the examination behind scheduled.

A supervisor at one of the centres Mr Adnan Bala called on JAMB to upgrade their machines to capture candidates with issues relating to fingerprints.

Zonal Director of JAMB in charge of Lafia Zonal Office, Dr Mahmuda Adamu said special provisions were made for those who had bad or mutilated fingers to enable them to sit for the examination.

Dr Mahmuda Adamu expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the examination in all the 20 Computer Based Test Centres across Nasarawa state so far.
