JAMB speaks on recruitment of invigilators for 2021 UTME, DE
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has raised an alarm over alleged recruitment of ‘invigilators’ for the 2021 UTME/DE, ongoing into its board.
Fabian Benjamin, Head, Public Affairs, says criminal elements are behind the scheme and that the scammers are requesting the payment of N5,000 acceptance fee payable to the syndicate.
The spokesman noted that the term “invigilator” is alien to the Board’s operations and advised the public to be wary of anybody purporting there are vacancies to be filled.
JAMB said any process for recruitment for permanent or ad-hoc staff would be announced and done transparently.
Benjamin advised Nigerians not to lose their hard-earned resources on the premise of securing non-existing jobs with the examination body.
“Many dubious individuals have cultivated the habit of placing different kinds of advertorials for one service or another in the name of the Board without authorization”, he added.
The statement appealed to those with information about the fraudsters to report them to security agencies.
