The sideline of the examination body’s Information and Communication Technology retreat was held in Abeokuta on Tuesday 14th February, 2017. It was a 2-day retreat held within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library complex in Abeokuta which had in attendance civil society groups, students and other major stakeholders.

At the retreat, the Registrar , Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board , Prof . Ishaq Oloyede said 1.7 million candidates are expected to sit for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in April.

In his statement, he said , “We are expecting 1.7 million candidates to sit for the UTME this year and we want to make sure we satisfy these candidates within a week or thereabout.”

“That is why we are increasing the capacity of the Computer-Based Test Centres to be able to examine more candidates within a given date.”

Though he said the examination body would not promise a hitch-free examination, but, he said there were changes and innovations ongoing which would send some illegal operators who had defrauded candidates in the past out of business.

Oloyede, however, said the examination body would not relent in its mission to serve its candidates better.
