Ngozi Nwude-Nduka, Administrator at Integral Development Consult, Awka, Anambra State, said its centre for the ongoing Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board examination would not be open to its candidates on Monday.
Nwude-Nduka said that the centre, which had held six sessions of the JAMB examination since it commenced on May 6, had not recorded any technical hitches.
She said that the centre hosted 250 JAMB candidates per session, which comprised morning, afternoon, and evening schedules on May 6 and 7.
Nwude-Nduka said that candidates posted to its centre have conducted themselves well according to the rules governing external examinations, except for a few candidates who, for logistics reasons, missed their scheduled examination.
She said that the management had had no security challenges or reasons to shut down the centre to the examination candidates since the process started but would shut down its centre on May 9 due to the sit-at-home being observed in Anambra State as pronounced by the Indigenous People of Biafra, which later called it off, but still being enforced by unidentified people.
“We want to play safe for the safety of the candidates as possibilities of non-vehicular movement may be experienced and hinder a smooth transportation process for candidates who will come from far and near for the said examination,” she said.
Nwude-Nduka advised affected candidates to reprint their examination slips to know their new dates for the examination and urged other candidates for the May 10 and 11 examination schedule to be on time at the centre to avoid lateness to their examination venue.
