Reps Urge JAMB to Extend 2024 UTME Registration by Two Weeks

In response to the economic challenges faced by many families in Nigeria, the House of Representatives has called on the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) to extend the registration period for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by two weeks. The decision was reached during a plenary session on Thursday and aims to ensure that a larger number of candidates can participate in the examination.

The motion for the extension was proposed by Bello Shinkafi, who emphasized the economic constraints faced by families, preventing them from registering their wards within the initially allotted timeframe. The 2024 UTME registration, which began on January 15th, was scheduled to conclude on February 26th, 2024.

Shinkafi, while presenting the motion, highlighted the critical role of JAMB in conducting the UTME for admitting candidates into tertiary institutions across Nigeria. He expressed concern that the current economic situation has hindered many families from completing the registration process for their children.

“We are all aware of the painful economic situation prevailing in the country. As a result, many families have been constrained from registering their wards by this timeline,” Shinkafi stated.

He further pointed out that without an extension of the registration period, a significant number of potential candidates would be excluded from participating in the UTME this year, leading to reduced coverage and participation.


The House of Representatives, in their resolution, mandated the relevant Committee on Education and Legislative Compliance to ensure strict compliance with the extension. The lawmakers believe that the two-week extension will provide families with the necessary time to register their children and enhance the overall inclusivity of the 2024 UTME.

The resolution read, “House to mandate the JAMB to extend the registration for two weeks to enable the anticipated potential candidates to register for the 2024 UTME.” The House believes that this extension will not only address the economic challenges faced by families but also contribute to public confidence in the current administration.

JAMB is now expected to respond promptly to this resolution, taking into consideration the socio-economic factors affecting candidates’ registration for the UTME. The outcome of this decision will likely impact the participation and success of candidates in the upcoming examination.
