Oloyede gave the charge at a virtual meeting with the proprietors of accredited CBT centres preparatory to the 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise.

He urged the centre owners to be mindful of their sensitive responsibilities given the strategic importance of the registration exercise to the nation.

The registrar said JAMB would continue to partner with reliable CBT centres, noting that some centres were sanctioned on account of the various infractions committed during the 2021 exercise. He added that the Board would not hesitate to do the same should any of them be found wanting.

“I urged you to play your roles responsibly. We would continue to identify bad eggs among you and apply necessary sanctions as the exercise is too important to the nation to be jeopardised by the interests of a few fraudulent individuals,” he said.

Prof Oloyede warned against unwholesome behaviours like extortion, overnight registration, movement of routers to other locations other than the approved centre, attending to candidates by proxy, among others, adding that the Board has put mechanisms in place to detect all forms of infractions.
