Why We Reduced Our Fees, JAMB Opens Up

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Wednesday said it reduced its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board Examination (UTME) registration fees because it wanted to alleviate the burden of the cost of the examination on parents.

The board has reduced its registration fee for the 2019 from N5, 000 to N3, 500.

JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, in a statement in Abuja, the nation’s capital on Wednesday, said the reduction has been approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The statement said Mr. Buhari was concerned about the burden of the registration fees on the plight of ordinary Nigerians.
The statement reads: “In Mr. President’s determination to alleviate poverty and ensure that every Nigerian desirous of tertiary education is not deprived, government had introduced policies and incentive to boost the economy of ordinary Nigerians and has seen this reduction as a platform to bring more Nigerians on the tertiary education template.

“The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board had in less than two years shown commitment to the avowed direction of the President Buhari-led administration by returning over 15 billion.

“The Board has been charged to sustain its known inclusiveness, transparency, accountability and the enviable position it is occupying amongst global examination bodies.”
