Meanwhile, UTME Candidate Laments Postponement Of Exam Due To Server Issues
According to reports, a UTME candidate has lamented thus:
“When will Nigeria ever progress? Can you imagine that candidates writing today at St. Rita Innovative Institute Fegge Onitsha Anambra were told to go back and wait for 2 days, all because of poor computer and server issues.
JAMB knew about this at the initial stage and still went ahead to accredit the center. On reaching today the computer server was very bad that they couldn’t conduct the exam for both 6:30 and 9:30 candidates.
We were asked to relax and go home that they will send us our new centers and dates. What nonsense!!! seriously something must be done about this whole thing.”
