The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede on Tuesday, ordered the suspension of two additional e-pin vendors for extortion of candidates.
The offenders are Digital Partners and Parkway Projects both based in Lagos.
Recall that the Board had earlier announced the suspension of E-Tranzact for the same offence.
Oloyede instructed a field monitoring of the ongoing registration of candidates for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Education Examination.
In his interaction with candidates waiting to get register at the JKK Computer Centre along Ikorodu Road, the Registrar was told by two of the candidates that the affected vendors overcharged them by N800 extra.
The male and female candidates informed the Registrar that the vendor charged them N6,500 against the approved N5,700 by JAMB.
The Registrar warned vendors not to toy with ongoing registration, saying any vendor caught involved in sharp practices will be suspended from further participation in 2023 registration exercises.
The Registrar encouraged all eligible candidates to take advantage of the one month for registration to do so, saying there will be no extension
