JAMB candidates affected by the closure of LAUTECH on Monday may be relocated to Ilorin for the examination.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this on Monday during a briefing, adding that thousands of candidates who chose the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, as their centre, would be moved to Kwara State, because of the ongoing protests by the student union of the institution.
Oloyede, who held the briefing after monitoring the UTME in some centres in Abuja, was accompanied by the Minister of State for Education, Prof Anthony Anwukah.
“We understand the case in LAUTECH. We have taken care of our two centres on the campus. Arrangements are being made to transfer the students because there are no private CBT centres in Ogbomoso. If the workers and students do not call off their strike in Ogbomoso by Tuesday, we will reschedule all the registered candidates there to Ilorin, Kwara State.”
