JAMB candidates 2021 to link their applications to their NIN?

Prospective candidates of this 2021 UTME might need to connect their software for their National Identification Number (NIN). That is arriving after the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) along with the National Identification and Management Commission (NIMC) entered into a partnership to possess the NIN as part of JAMB’s registration standards.

NIMC’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kayode Adegoke who revealed that the agreement was made earlier this year, explained that the NIN was not used in the 2020 examinations due to technical hitches.

He however maintained that the technical issues have been resolved and assured that the Commission was ready to capture all the candidates because all necessary steps has been taken.

According to him, his conviction stems from the recent licensing of 203 agents by the Federal Government who are due to commence work immediately after Christmas celebrations. He stressed that with this, the NIMC can capture the over two million UTME candidates.
