The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been called upon by the House of Representatives to suspend the policy of National Identification Number (NIN) as a requirement for intending candidates.
This came following a motion presented by Zainab Gimba (APC, Borno) who called on JAMB to review the policy on the use of NIN for prospective applicants until 2021.
Leading the debate, Gimba said it was necessary for JAMB to review the timeline pending the establishment of more enrolment centres by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) across the country.
According to her, an official of NIMC had recently disclosed that, less than 20 percent of Nigerians are captured in their database.

She further expressed concern that, although Nigerians turned out to be captured by NIMC, “most have been hindered by infrastructural challenges like poor network, power failure, no power supply and sometimes inadequate manpower or equipment to attend to them”.
It was suggested that, JAMB should collaborate more with NIMC, states and local governments for an efficient registration of its prospective candidates.
