The use of scratch cards will no longer be used for
any of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) transactions
and services.

The Registrar/Chief Executive of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede,
made the announcement via a statement issued by the Spokesperson of
JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin on Sunday, October 16 in Abuja during a meeting
of the Association of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities.
to the statement, Oloyede demanded that the Federal Government revert
to the old system where serving Vice Chancellors of Universities also
served as chairmen of the Governing Board of JAMB.
said that JAMB would be using the platform of pin vending to put a
check on all forms of fraudulent practices which has been prevalent with
the use of scratch cards.
“The decision is as
a result of its consistent subjection to fraudulent practices, the use
of scratch cards is archaic and it is the drive by JAMB to also promote
accountability in line with government’s zero tolerance for corruption.
This new system will be accessible through the options of web payment,
ATM issued cards (Visa, verve and Mastercard), online quick teller, ATM
payment, quick teller mobile application and Bank Branch case/card”, he said.
he appealed to the Federal Government to revert to the old system with
VC’s as the Board chairmen, Oloyede added that it would be proper for
Vice-Chancellors to be recognised as active stakeholders seeing as the
agency is a creation of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors.

This, according to him, would avoid any resentment between tertiary institutions and JAMB.
expressed his belief that reverting to the old practices would 
“engender good synergies and harmonious relationship with a view to
effectively delivering on its mandates.”
