The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has disclosed it paid a total sum of N1,478,416,000.00 to owners of  non-JAMB Computer-Based Test centres nationwide for services they rendered during the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

JAMB made the disclosure in a statement on Thursday by the Director, Public Affairs and Protocol of the Board, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

Benjamin said it was only proper to promptly settle obligations as and when due so as to promote and sustain a cordial working relationship with partners who discharge their duties creditably.

“It is to be noted that most of the centres used for the examination are not JAMB-owned while some are ICT facilities of tertiary institutions.

 “This symbiotic relationship between the board and the privately-owned CBT centres and others is collaborative in nature and is designed to ensure better quality service delivery and inclusiveness.

“Hence, the board is proud to announce that all centres owners who rendered quality service during the just-concluded examination had been appropriately commended for a job well done and paid accordingly,” he stated.
