The Acting Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta has said that the Commission’s provision of Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres for Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is meant to enhance standard, ITRealms reports.

Danbatta said this when JAMB officials paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja to express gratitude tothe Telecom regulator for building and donating four CBT centres to the examination board in order to augment facilities for smooth conduct of CBT.  The four centers are located in Kano, Niger, Bayelsa and Oyo states. The centres are equipped with computers, printers, other accessories and Internet connectivity.

In a press release signed by the Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Tony Ojobo,  Danbatta told the JAMB officials led by its Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde that NCC does every of its activities and projects in line with international best practices and “we have a minimum standard that we maintain for all our projects and there is no exception.”

Earlier in his remarks,ITRealms gathered, Ojerinde said JAMB appreciates, NCC gesture in this direction and “we ask for more.” So far, he said JAMB is also deploying its, CBT centres in Digital Bridge Institute (DBI), facilities in Abuja, Kano and Oshodi, Lagos State and this is in addition to the over 500 of CBT centres across the country.

“These centres are now being used for registration by potential candidates for the next Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) instead of cyber cafes,” Ojerinde submitted.
