The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) on Tuesday stated that it has postponed the sale of its 2018 application forms.
According to a statement by the Board's Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin in Abuja, the sale of the application documents, which was scheduled to start on November 22, 2017 suffered delay due to the publishers’ inability to print the 1.8 million copies of the forms before the deadline.
“This postponement was due to the delay in meeting agreed deadline by the publisher of the Compulsory Reading Text meant for prospective candidates for the 2018 UTME. The publisher had promised to deliver all the texts for the 2018 candidates on or before November 7 but as at close of work today, the publisher has not provided the 1.8m copies required. This development has painfully, forced the Board to shift the date from Wednesday, November 22 to a date to be announced soon” Benjamin said.
Benjamin further stated that the Board would work round the clock to ensure a new date is announced soon.
