Authorities of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has refuted the allegation that the institution was charging above N700 as cost of registration for the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) Computer Based Test (CBT).

The University, which denied the allegation in a statement also said the suspension of the institution’s Information Communication Technology ( ICT) Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre over alleged breach of the code governing the 2019 JAMB registration exercise was done hastily and without proper investigation.

The statement which was signed by the University Public Relations Officer, Mr. Michael Osasuyi, said that JAMB was solely in charge of vending of Pins, while the Institution’s Information Communication Technology ( ICT) Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre charged the duly approved N700 only as cost of registration .

Osasuyi who described the action by JAMB which had earlier suspended UNIBEN CBT Centre said such would amount to denying the University of Benin access code to clear the backlog of over 300 candidates.

“Since we are not vending pins, JAMB has the authority over pins vending and can track the source of each pin they have dispensed.

“It is not proper for JAMB to withdraw our access without proper investigation of the accusation. For clarification, University of Benin is not vending JAMB PINs. We only attend to candidate who have their pins and they pay only N700.”Osasuyi said.

He appealed to JAMB to restore access to the University Portal to enable candidates process their registration without delay, saying “the centre has a record of all the candidates we have registered to date and the N700 paid is on record for our Auditing Process.”

Osasuyi who commended JAMB for swiftly putting up measures to check extortion of candidates in the registration exercise said the University and JAMB remains partners in the quest for quality education delivery in the country.

“We have partnered with JAMB over the years without blemish, this accusation is therefore a serious embarrassment to the University of Benin. We look forward to your prompt release of our access code to be able to clear the backlog of over 300 candidates as a result of the withdrawal of our access.” Osasuyi said.
