JAMB Commence Sales Of 2024 Direct Entry Forms

2024 UTME: JAMB Approves Free Registration For People With Disabilities

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has invited all interested candidates to purchase and register for its 2024 Direct Entry (DE) examination.

Naija News reports that the exam body announced the sales of the DE forms on Tuesday, stating that the registration procedure will commence on Wednesday, 28th February 2024, and conclude on Thursday, 28th March 2024.

In the public statement, the spokesperson for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated that the sale is accessible to international candidates who wish to pursue higher education in Nigeria via the Direct Entry mode.

“Furthermore, the Board will continue to ensure a level playing field for all candidates irrespective of status. The Board would not process candidates’ applications from all awarding institutions that have refused to honour several requests for the verification of their A’level certificates presented by some candidates for the 2023 admission,” the statement noted.

Benjamin noted that candidates who have not yet received their results must ensure that they have submitted their A’ level qualifications, O’level results, and DE registration template during the registration process. Admission for DE candidates will not be processed until the claimed results are uploaded and verified by the awarding institutions on the Board’s Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) mail platform.

The statement added: “DE candidates, who at the point of registration are awaiting A’level results of IJMB/JUPEB/NABTEB, must have uploaded their Admission Letter and Registration Template at the point of registration.

“This verification exercise may take up to 28 days (as specified by the awarding body) after which the verification result would be forwarded to the Board. The verification would be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate. Statement of results (in lieu of certificate) is accepted for registration only within three years of the date of award.”

Senate Confirms Hafsat Bakare As NFIU Boss

The Senate has confirmed Hafsat Bakare as the Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).

The resolution of the red chamber followed its adoption of the recommendation of the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes that screened the nominee.

The chairman of the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes, Senator Emmanuel Menga Udende, presented the report to the Senate during Tuesday’s plenary.

The Senate approved the recommendation of the committee when it was put to a voice vote by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

Akpabio, in his remark, congratulated Bakare on her appointment and urged her to bring to bear her wealth of experience in uplifting the operations and effectiveness of the NFIU.

Recall that President Bola Tinubu had nominated Bakare to head the NFIU pending her confirmation by the Senate.

By the appointment, Bakare will replace Modibbo Tukur who was relieved of his job by President Tinubu in June 2023.

Before her nomination for appointment as the CEO of the NFIU, Bakare served as deputy director at the NFIU, and was at different times the Head of the General Services Unit; Head of the Strategy and Reorientation Unit, and Head of the Board Secretariat of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The NFIU boss is a lawyer and financial intelligence expert with years of experience in anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing, and counter-proliferation financing.
