According to Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Chancellor, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the board will use drones and CCTV cameras to monitor the 2020 university and tertiary matriculation exams (UTME).
He announced the information during a two-day meeting with operators of computer-based test (CBT) centers, government coordinators of the board of directors, financial institutions and Internet service providers on Thursday in Zaria, Kaduna state.
NAN reports that Oloyede also said JAMB generated N20 billion from 2016 to 2019.
He told CBT center operators not to worry about their investments while doing business with the board as long as they do their job according to the agreed registration and audit guidelines.
"You have nothing to fear and you should know that if you put together your investments, it cannot go up to N20 billion and we as an agency have accumulated N20 billion in three years.
“As a government agency, we have to make sure that small and medium-sized businesses thrive, and if you multiply 11 employees by 700, you will know better.
"We are also increasing the added value for the economy and job creation in your job market and will continue to support you once you have done your job well," he said.
Oloyede said the board has also announced its willingness to use drone cameras in all 700 test centers identified to review any activity that could jeopardize the board's efforts to be a transparent government agency for which it was known.
The Chancellor pointed out: "All video surveillance devices must be wired, all cameras must cover control areas, coding areas, walkways, examination room, server room and entrance and exit in all centers.
"We will use drones to monitor the centers and check registration and audit scandals."
In the area of law enforcement of prisoners, he said: "100 freshly caught candidates will be prosecuted – 20 detained and 80 others will be investigated."
