The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cleared the air over multiple exam scheduling of one Aminat Yahaya Suleiman in the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) exercise.
Speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, the Public Relations Officer, JAMB, Benjamin Fabian, said the video made on TikTok by Aminat accusing the board was false.
He said the candidate registered for the examination in Abuja but relocated to Ibadan without notifying JAMB through the change of location option available on its portal.

He said having investigated the matter, it was discovered that Aminat Yahaya Suleiman and her sister, Zainab Yahaya Suleiman, as she claimed, shared the same phone using two different numbers which were registered with JAMB, hence the multiple messages received on the same phone.
He said there were various indications that Aminat might have registered twice using two different NIN because the photos on the JAMB portal on the two registration had a striking resemblance aside from other issues regarding the use of awaiting results for the NECO she wrote since 2018 at age 14.
He also said another suspicious activity was that the forms filled on the JAMB portal had both candidates chosen to study Islamic Studies at the University of Abuja with the same surname and middle name.
