their applications already for the 2017 UTME.
He further revealed that over 678 centres across the country against the
last year’s figure of 650 CBT centres, would be put to use with
estimated 1.5 million candidates for the examination.
He said though there was collaboration with Nigeria Liquefied Natural
Gas (LNG)-producing company to air lift candidates in riverine areas to
their CBT centres.
He mentioned that the reason for ‘capturing’ candidates’ ten fingers in
biometric registration is to forestall incidence of multiple
registrations as noticed with previous years registration.
He said the board also insisted on profile creation and other processes
to strengthen the education data and ensure that candidates do not go
through ‘hell’ years after graduating from tertiary institutions.
