✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates in the Southwest, yesterday, protested in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, over non-availability of exam centres, theNation reports.

The candidates marched on most media offices, calling on the government to come to their aid.

Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, the protest leader, Ola Jacobs, said Nigerians should prevail on those concerned to find a solution to their predicament.


“There is no centre for us in the Southwest to write the exams. Can you imagine a candidate travelling as far as Enugu to write an examination just because there is no centre here?

“Some candidates will go to Abuja, Nasarawa and Edo. Candidates who registered last year had no problems.

“But, all of us who registered last month have no centres. We have gone to JAMB to complain but our problems were not addressed. The deadline was last Friday but it was extended to Friday.”
