The House of Representatives has passed a resolution directing the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB to extend the registration period for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME by an additional two weeks.

This decision follows the adoption of a motion raised by Hon. Hassan Shinkafi, representing the Shinkafi/Zurmi Federal Constituency in Zamfara State.

In his presentation, Hon. Shinkafi highlighted the economic challenges faced by many families in the country, which have hindered their ability to register their children for the UTME within the current time frame.

The UTME registration exercise, which commenced on January 15, was originally scheduled to end on February 26, 2024.

However, Hon. Shinkafi emphasized that extending the registration period is crucial to ensure broader participation in the examination.

He emphasized that without an extension, many candidates would be unable to register and participate in the UTME, resulting in reduced coverage and participation nationwide.

Additionally, he argued that extending the registration period would encourage parents of economically disadvantaged students to register their children for the examination.

In response to Hon. Shinkafi’s motion, the House of Representatives urged JAMB to extend the registration period by two weeks.

Furthermore, the relevant committees on Education and Legislative Compliance have been tasked with ensuring strict compliance with the extension directive.
