Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Yobe state, said it had recorded large turn out of candidates despite the security challenges witnessed two days ago where the Boko Haram insurgents attempted to launch attack on the state capital.
The State Coordinator, Mohammed Umar, disclosed this on Thursday while going round the centres in Damaturu.
Umar, said there were three centres in Damaturu, the state capital, two in Gashua,one each in Potiskum and Geidam centres.
He further, said the centres had 100-150 candidates each.
“We have 7 centres in the state spread across Damaturu, Gashua,
Potiskum and Geidam. So far the examination is going on without any hitch, as you can see we are through with the first out of the three papers to be written”.
“I just received message from one of the vulnerable centre, that is Geidam, and I am happy to tell you the examination is ongoing without problem” he said.
As at time of filling-in this report, the only complain received was from Khadija Yusuf who told Blueprint that her WAEC and JAMB examinations were going on simultaneously so she had to create little time for both of the examinations.
