According to JAMB's latest bulletin, the body's registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, at a virtual meeting with affected centres, which was hosted from the headquarters of the agency on Friday, June 7, 2024, urged centres to avoid any forms of infractions that could undermine the examination and attract sanctions from the Board.

It would be recalled that the affected centres had their examinations cancelled on account of substantial non-compliance with laid-down rules and regulations.

Prof. Oloyede frowned at the level of alleged laxity and compromise witnessed in many of the centres stating that the board would not tolerate "anything that would negatively impact its image."

Furthermore, he explained that the decision to reschedule the examination was considering there might be innocent candidates among the candidates so as not to subject them to punishment unjustly.
