According to a report by The PUNCH, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says its portal has been reopened for the 2020/2021 admissions.
The board said opening the portal gives institutions access to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admissions.
The spokesperson for JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, confirmed this in a telephone interview on Wednesday.
When our correspondent visited the JAMB’s website on Wednesday, the portal had been opened.
He quoted the Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, as saying that admission processes must go through the Central Admission Processing System for approval.
Earlier, JAMB warned the public not to fall prey to fraudsters and rumour mongers.
”The clarification became necessary following fake news that the board has begun the sale and was urging prospective applicants to procure same from some nebulous selling outlets.
