Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has said the board may introduce a new mode of registration in 2018 to checkmate fraudsters.
Oloyede stated this during a news conference on Thursday in Lagos.
He also said any Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate defrauded by con men, did not deserve any sympathy.
“Among the malpractices discovered this year was a case of two different persons having fingerprints for a candidate.
“In this case, it is the impersonator and the person being impersonated conniving with some other persons at the CBT centres.
“However, as they are coming up with all these tricks, we are putting modalities on ground to be ahead of them.
“I want to assure that next year’s examination might not use the current method we used in the examination process.
“People are being criminally innovative, but that will not stop us from moving ahead and protecting the sanctity and integrity of our examination,” Oloyede said.
