Matriculation Board, JAMB to extend the registration deadline for the
registration of 2017 UTME.
This came after the motion raised by Danburan Nuhu (Kano-APC).
According to Mr. Nuhu during the 2016 UTME exercise, about 1.6 million
applicants registered for the UTME and about one million passed. He
stated that the 2017 exercise might reach 2 million across the country

centre to forestall any incidence of stampede due to overcrowding.
The motion was unanimously adopted by the House and the committee on
basic education was mandated to direct JAMB to comply with the
