JAMB Under Fire For Using WhatsApp Status Screenshots To Announce 2021 UTME


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has come under fire on Twitter for using WhatsApp status screenshots to disseminate information to Nigerians.

On Thursday, the board had shared WhatsApp status screenshots on its verified Twitter handle which contained details about the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

“JAMB 2021 UTME/DE registration is officially starting on April 8 to May 15,” the screenshotted post read.

“NIN is a compulsory requirement for 2021 UTME/DE registration. Kindly get your NIN before the start of registration exercise.”

The development has sparked mixed reactions on the microblogging platform with many users wondering why the board could not engage the services of a graphic designer instead.

“That tweet from JAMB is the exact reflection of what happens in civil service. Do things anyhow. Everything jaga jaga. Such lackadaisical attitude and approach to work. What is worth doing is worth doing well abeg,” a user wrote.

“JAMB makes roughly about N7,000,000,000 yearly, yet they couldn’t afford a graphic designer to help them design an official post. Instead they passed an official information using WhatsApp screenshot, using different colour…,” another user wrote.

SKYTRENDNEWS had earlier reported how candidates can register for the 2021 UTME billed to commence on April 8.
