According to the JAMB boss, 53 centres are currently under watch, while 600 of them performed excellently. It is our wish and desire that the board will continue to ensure that such non-performing centres with ulterior motive will not be allowed to participate in the exercise,” he said. Oloyede explained that the use of National Identity Number, NIN, as directed by the federal government helped to reduce malpractice during the examinations. He said: “We were talking about the bogus 2.2 million candidates, but it has become clearer that more than 500,000 of such number are fake and duplication. And we were able to detect this through NIN and now we have realistic number of JAMB candidates.’
