The House of Representatives has asked the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to suspend its new policy requiring the National Identity Number for candidates to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
The motion was moved by Rep. Zainab Gimba under Matters of Urgent Public Importance at plenary presided over by the Speaker of the House, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila on Wednesday.
The lawmakers, however, urge the board to extend the use of the national ID “in order to allow more time and better awareness for prospective candidates”.
Gimba, moving the motion, explained that the compulsory use of prospective candidates‘ data with NIMC database would facilitate the data capture of candidates for JAMB.
She said this would curb incidences of multiple registration and other forms of malpractices perpetrated in the UTME process.
The lawmaker, however, expressed concern that many prospective candidates from remote locations in the country might not be able to register for the UTME due to non-registration with NIMC.
She also expressed concern that the notice given by JAMB “is too sudden and not sufficient to allow all prospective UTME candidates to be captured by NIMC.
She further stated that although many Nigerians turned out to be captured by NIMC, most have not been able to do so due to infrastructural challenges like poor network, power failure, no power supply and sometimes inadequate manpower or equipment to attend to them. she mentioned that an official of NIMC recently disclosed that less than 20 percent of Nigerians are captured in their database.
The house, however, urged NIMC to establish more registration centres to accommodate the growing number of prospective candidates for the UTME.
Furthermore, the representatives directed the house committees on Tertiary Education and Services and National identity Management to Identify the challenges in capturing Nigerians.
