It has been revealed that NIN Will Be Used For 2021 UTME Candidates JAMB Registeration, if we can recall, this was earlier introduced for 2021 JAMB registeration but was latter suspended by the board.
This new update was communicated to the public by Mr. Kayode Adegoke, The Head of Corporate Affairs in the Commission, he said the NIN will be used as one of the criteria to register UTME candidates from next year because the earlier agreement signed between the two agencies is still subsisting.
The applications of 2021 UTME Candidates will be linked to their National Identification Number (NIN).
While speaking, he assured that NIMC was ready for the partnership as the agency had put all necessary machinery in motion to capture all the candidates.
According to him, the recent licensing of 203 agents to boost the capacity of the agency, the issue of capturing two million UTME candidates would not be an issue since the number of enrolment would be increased when the agents come on board next week.
“We have the capacity to capture all the UTME candidates but my worry is that they may not take advantage of four months window they have from now to get registered until when it remains one week, when they would be rushing and stampeding the Commission to capture them.”
‘‘My conviction stems from the recent licensing of 203 agents by the Federal Government who are due to commence work from next week, immediately after Christmas,” he said.
The prospective UTME candidates are advised to take the advantage of ample time they have now to get their NIN so as to avoid rushing hour and consequential denial to register.
‘‘They are not coming now that they have four months to enroll, it is when it remains one week that you see them rushing. There is no need to rush, if they start early now they have four months, they will all be registered. But you see, they will be coming one week to the deadline.

If they can come now, in a month NIMC can enroll about four million, so if they come within two months we have captured them but they are not coming.
