2021 UTME: JAMB identifies what caused its revenue to drop to N5.8bn

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that JAMB recorded lower revenue from the sale of forms for the 2021 UTME and the Direct Entry (DE).

The introduction of the use of the National Identification Number (NIN) for registration has been identified as the factor responsible for the drop in revenue.

JAMB's spokesman, Dr Fabian Benjamin disclosed this, saying candidates between 1.3 million and 1.4 million registered for the exam this year. It was gathered that the introduction of NIN made it impossible for some prospective candidates to register which equally led to the reduction in the number of registered candidates and the proceeds generated.
